CHILDREN'S
Released: Oct. 1, 1997

"Snowmen, sleds, snowball fights, thawing by the fire, hot chocolate time—it's a cozy litany, but Jabar is the one who livens up the static, gerund-laden text with scenes of joyous children, unusual snowmen, and a dog's antics. (Picture book. 3-6)"
A rhyming celebration of snow that covers just about every playtime activity possible before, during, and after a snowstorm. ``Pressure's falling/forecast's calling/for a snowstorm late today./`Find your warm boots/lay out snowsuits/do a snow dance and it may!' '' The territory is so familiar that it may not matter that the stanzas are often mundane and occasionally strained in their meter. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

Released: June 8, 1995

"Rathbone tells why Evans's vision of America was archetypal and powerfully original, but his persona remains an elusive presence behind the work. (24 pages b&w photos, not seen)"
Serviceable and cautiously polite, this first full-length biography of photography giant Evans is nonetheless a long overdue contribution to scholarship. Read full book review >
