EVERY SEASON by Shelley Rotner
CHILDREN'S
Released: May 1, 2007

The team from Colors Around Us (1996) offers a similar reflection on the four seasons in (s)light free verse and high-resolution photographs, but no flaps this time. First comes spring, "when grass grows green" and flowers open and baby animals are huggable. Summer highlights include frolics in the water, going barefoot in the grass and the taste of fresh fruit. In autumn, "we pull up our hoods," watch the leaves turn and fall and watch the geese head south. In winter, snow blankets branches and buds, chickadees search for seeds and children drink hot chocolate, awaiting the next arrival of . . . spring! A generous serving of beautiful photographs (74 altogether) tells most of the story, with precision. And the minimal text deftly supports them, with a few typographical tricks (like the letters of "roar" getting progressively bigger). Harmonious achievement with subtle learning.
