PreSchool-Grade 3-Hori's delicate, ethereal pastel-and-watercolor illustrations will draw children into this magical book. Two dozen poets explore aspects of the season, from James Whitcomb Riley in "Winter Fancies" to Douglas Florian in "The Winter Tree." The Native American Taos people's story of winter as an old man appears in Nancy Wood's "Old Man Winter," and several poems are told from an animal's perspective, as in Marilyn Singer's energetic "Deer Mouse" ("-get busy/get done/get get get get/get out of here/run"). From cozy to dangerous, serious to humorous, the poems evoke the emotions and senses of the season, and will delight listeners and readers.
