“This small and simple concept book describes the colors in a spring morning, a summer day, a fall evening, and a winter night. Four specific scenes lead up to each panoramic double-page spread that features a farmhouse with a girl and a boy, a cat and a dog. Siddals’s appropriately straightforward and economical text is brought to life by Mather’s folksy watercolors. . . . It is well done without being overdone, and the size is just right.” —School Library Journal

“Cheerful yet elegant, spare yet satisfying, compact yet enveloping: these are hardly the words usually associated with simple concept books for the youngest children. But words and paintings combine to create a season book that surprises to the end. . . . Both author and artist capture the seasons with poetic intensity and wonder, finishing after ‘Winter night’ with the simplest yet pleasing conclusion: ‘Good night.’”—ALA Booklist

“A book of simple but deeply gratifying pleasures.” —Publishers Weekly

From School Library Journal:

PreS. This small and simple concept book describes the colors in a spring morning, a summer day, a fall evening, and a winter night. Four specific scenes lead up to each panoramic double-page spread that features a farmhouse with a girl and a boy, a cat and a dog. Siddals's appropriately straightforward and economical text is brought to life by Mathers's folksy watercolors. On facing single pages, she balances the colors and images well, sometimes even continuing the same background from one frame to the next. In her double-page spreads, she includes details that readers can trace from one season to the next (a toy sailboat in the window comes outside for summer play, but returns to its window in the fall; a clothesline is put up in summer and taken down for winter), introducing earliest readers to story line in a book. The careful finishing touches of a smiling sun on the title page, and a smiling, sleeping moon above the final page's "Good night" reflect the thoughtful execution of this fine book. It is well done without being overdone, and the size (a square seven inches) is just right.?Nina Lindsay, Vista School, Albany, CA
