About this title


A collection of poems about nature and wildlife, spanning all the seasons of the year.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- Like its companion books--Step into the Night (1988) and Mockingbird Morning (1989, both Four Winds)--Ryder's latest close-up look at nature urges readers to search carefully for the small hidden creatures around them. They are everywhere in Nolan's now-familiar photorealistic, earth-toned watercolors--in holes and tunnels, under rocks, or protected by the hazy green water of a pond. Unlike the first two volumes, which cover brief periods--the twilight hours and early morning--this one spans the seasons, hinting at warm weather dens and hiding places, as well as subterranean winter burrows. The poetic text pairs the actions of a boy with those of the creatures hiding nearby. The sophisticated poetry and abrupt jumps from season to season will better suit school-age children than preschoolers. Many of Nolan's paintings exhibit a deft use of perspective that gives them a three-dimensional quality. One painting cleverly shows the shadows of Canada geese on the ground, while another features animals hidden murkily in the mud. There is, however, an unevenness to the illustrations. Lifelike creatures and natural objects are sometimes coupled with the flat lines of saplings, lifeless blades of grass, or one-dimensional animals. Despite this, text and illustrations do provide a quietly appealing nature lesson. --Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
