Julie Fogliano has spent her entire life reading children's books. Now she stays up way too late writing her own books while eating cereal. She lives in the Hudson Valley with her husband and their three children. They make her very tired, but give her lots of good ideas. This is her third book. Julie Morstad is an award-winning illustrator and artist living with her family in Vancouver, B.C.
Complementing the poems are Morstad's gouache and pencil crayon illustrations that range from effectively simple (a firefly glowing in the dark) to tantalizingly detailed (spot the inchworm or the ladybug in the shrubs). A multiracial cast of children relishing the delights of the seasons adds to this title's appeal. --Booklist, starred review "Spreads filled with gentle, watercolor depictions of children experiencing seasonal activities include some surprising details that demand closer perusal and wonderfully complement and extend the text. "--School Library Journal, starred "This combination of poetry and art in praise of the familiar, natural world is sweetly, successfully dazzling."--Kirkus Reviews, starred "Working in gouache and pencil, Morstad (Swan) creates an appealing, multiracial cast of children in scarves and swimsuits, pajamas and parkas, while helping highlight the way that small things--a sprouting plant, a falling leaf--can herald big changes."-- Publisher's Weekly, starred
