The creator of several simple, appealing picture books (Where Does the Brown Bear Go?, 1989) presents preschooler Angel and his mother, indoors and out, in a city neighborhood where they live between ""El Bodegero"" and ""Pepe's Luncheonette."" The simple text highlights seasonal changes and activities (""On a cold winter day...Mama says, 'Bundle up...' "") and year-round affection, while in the airy, simple compositions there are intriguing details to follow: a cat that reappears, items on sale at the store, the contents of a rooftop clothesline. It's all lovingly tied together in a fifth, nighttime scene: ""On any old day, Mama says, 'Good night. Sleep tight.'...'Summer, fall, winter, spring--Mama loves her Angel.' "" Warm and attractive, a good choice for any season.
