Next comes ice like panes of glass. And eventually, skating ice! Take a literary skate over field ice and streams, through sleeping orchards and beyond. The first ice, the second ice, the third ice...perfect ice...the last ice...Twelve kinds of ice are carved into twenty nostalgic vignettes, illustrated in elegantly scratched detail by the award-winning Barbara McClintock.

Promotional Information

With the first ice - a skim on a sheep pail so thin, it breaks when touched - one family's winter begins in earnest.

Reviews

- A Junior Library Guild Selection - A Winter 2012-13 Kids' Indie Next List Pick - Kirkus Best Children's Books of 2012 - Booklist's Editors' Choice list for 2012 - NYPL 100 Titles for Reading & Sharing, 2012 "[A] perfect snowflake of a book. . . this is a book about a young woman's deep connection to nature and her family, but also the thrilling reward of pitching in together to create something magical" --New York Times Book Review "Snug and elegant, evocative and fun, Ellen Bryan Obed's memoir from her childhood winters in Maine skates along in an aesthetic pas de deux, as you might say, with Barbara McClintock's graceful black-and-white drawings." --The Wall Street Journal"Evocative and at the same time marvelously real, this is as much about expectation and the warmth to be found in family and friends as it is about cold ice . . . Everyone will find this a small gem." --Booklist, starred review"Irresistible." --Kirkus, starred review"This is a celebration of play, of winter, and of imagination . . . in an icy collection whose overarching quality is warmth." --Horn Book"Like a souvenir from a bygone era . . . Today's readers will marvel at the old-fashioned amusements, chronicled with folksy charm." --Publishers Weekly, starred review"Delicate pen-and-ink illustrations enhance the action, emotions, and humor of each short description of ice and frost goings-on. . . . [A] brief but unforgettable volume." --School Library Journal, starred review"The rituals and humor connected with a timeless childhood experience unspool seemingly without effort from author and artist in this intimate volume." --Shelf Awareness, starred review "This is a joyful, spirited gem of a book, as bracing and glorious as a perfect stretch of ice." --Joyce Sidman, Newbery Honor author
