An evocative, poetic bedtime book filled with delicate, tranquil illustrations meditates in verse on footprints as they appear throughout the seasons and on shadows as they change over the course of the day, growing into dancing silhouettes at evening.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- This book about ephemeral signs of existence is a dramatic success. The brief text, in poetic, repetitive prose, follows logical sequences through the seasons watching footprints come and go, and through a day watching shadows appear and disappear. It's the art, however, that makes the connections and brings the concepts to life. With acrylic paints and an impressionistic style, Sorensen uses color and texture in a thoroughly convincing manner; natural light seems to saturate the pages, and features omitted serve to highlight details of importance--puddles that are footprints, a tree whose shadow comes inside the house. It's the purity and intensity of the light in these pictures that manage to convey time of year and of day so persuasively, and to illustrate the differences that result from the changing times. Hints of reflections appear in several of the paintings, but the final page, a wordless water scene without footprint or shadow, is a step in one more direction with magnificent mirror-images of boats and rocks. More subtle than Tana Hoban's Shadows and Reflections (Greenwillow, 1990), this would work well paired with either that book or one on times of day and year. --Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library System
