Nikki McClure is a self-taught artist who has been making paper-cuts since 1996. She is the author and illustrator of Abrams’ Collect Raindrops and the illustrator of All In a Day, by Cynthia Rylant. Kirkus said her illustrations make such nebulous concepts as hope and renewal accessible to young readers,” and Publishers Weekly said children will enjoy the tenderness of McClure’s images.” She lives in Olympia, Washington.
PreSchool-K—Repetition of this book's title question ties together responses and scenes of a child and his mother as they wait for warmer weather. It's a long winter, but small signs of the coming seasons are there each day. The days pass with a graceful swirl as the most delicate of paper-cuts detail budding trees, squirrels nesting, soft earth for seedlings, young ducklings following their mother, swallows circling overhead, and blossoming trees, culminating in the anticipated delight of summer berries. "My little one, it is summer now!" Simple black paper contrasts with a light, neutral background, highlighting spare use of digitally added color accents; solid-color sheets underscore the repeated text. While appreciation of the magnificent complexity of these paper-cuts might be lost on the youngest of readers, children will appreciate the simple sentences and lyrical verse that relate the seasonal passing of time. A lovely, artistic addition.—Mary Elam, Learning Media Services Plano ISD, TX
