This exuberant collection of 28 of poems celebrating the seasons is written by the late Charlotte Zolotow, the author of more than 90 published books for children. Children ages 3 and up will appreciate the overarching message that although the seasons are always regular in their rhythms, human beings are the ones who are changing.

Little girls and boys are sure to find pleasure and delight in Zolotow's poems about lying in the grass, the feeling of the hot sun on our hair, the funny faces of pansies, blue as a good color, the salty wind by the sea, the day the world was weeping leaves, and the special quiet that accompanies the first snow.

Along with the lovely illustrations of Tiphanie Beeke, these poems provide families the chance to practice attention, wonder, vision, imagination, gratitude, joy, and transformation.
