Jane Yolen has received numerous awards for her writing, including the Golden Kite Award, two Christopher Medals, and both the Kerlan Award from the University of Minnesota and the Regina Medal for her body of work. In 2011 she was named Grand Master by the Science Fiction Poetry Association. She lives in Hatfield, Massachusetts, and St. Andrews, Scotland.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6-"When I awoke,/The tree limbs shone/As white as milk,/As bleached as bone." With easy grace, Yolen pens poetic lines to accompany Stemple's lovely photographs. The baker's dozen of poems are juxtaposed on panoramic views or placed alongside smaller scenes conveying soft billows of snow, icy glitter, and the white dust and crust of "that chilly white stuff." Soft lacy shadows of the photographed images form the background of some pages, echoing the sharper detail of the featured scene. Trees, the brown remnants of autumn leaves, skiers, and snowmobiles all receive their due. Some of the poems will long be savored, here and in future anthologies, while others are snippets of shorter season. "What shades of white/can paint a chasm?/Only a winter artist/hasm." The varied tone and multihued imagery of the poetry and photographs are sure to spark an enjoyment of winter.
