From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4 This collection of Zolotow's poetry includes 55 newly-published po ems and 17 from her earlier collections. Zolotow's strength is that her clear im ages and simple figurative language al low the youngest listeners and readers to clearly ``see'' the poem. The moods range from the light visual image of ``firefly,'' that ``small dart of fire,'' to the sounds of ``Bed'' where footsteps are sharp in the night, ``Then my moth er laughs downstairs.'' Tomes' black- and-white illustrations in her distinctive style balance and frame the poetry. The book is divided into sections which in clude ``Observing the World,'' ``The Sea,'' ``People and Friendship,'' ``The Seasons,'' ``Growing Things,'' and ``Bedtime Thoughts.'' A number of the poems, especially those on colors and animals, can be models for children's own poetry. Barbara Chatton, College of Education, University of Wyoming, Laramie

From Publishers Weekly:

This collection of poems, arranged under eight subject categories, successfully pairs two distinguished children's book creators. Like Japanese haiku, Zolotow's poems offer images rather than developed ideas, and they focus on the senseson feeling, seeing and touching. The language is simple and direct; the similes are easily accessible to children. The wings of a beetle, for example, "glisten/ like a small rainbow," and the snow sparkles "like crystals of sugar." The pond in the morning "is green/ with water lilies/ like little moons/ floating," and at night "is dark and mysterious/ like a bowl/ of black ink." Tomes's distinctive black-and-white drawings perceptively interpret these delicate poems where "everything glistens and everything sings/ in the spring wind/ after the rain." Ages 6-9.
