Summary

december 29
and i woke to a morning
that was quiet and white
the first snow
(just like magic) came on tip toes
overnight

Flowers blooming in sheets of snow make way for happy frogs dancing in the rain. Summer swims move over for autumn sweaters until the snow comes back again. In Julie Fogliano's skilled hand and illustrated by Julie Morstad's charming pictures, the seasons come to life in this gorgeous and comprehensive book of poetry.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* This slim book provides a nuanced look at a familiar theme: poetry for the seasons. Taking a diary-like approach, the text begins and ends with the spring equinox, offering poems for different days throughout the year. A bluebird's song starts things off, poking / a tiny hole / through the edge of winter / and landing carefully / balancing gently / on the tip of spring. Verse by verse, day by day, the snow melts, April showers fall, magnolias bloom, berries ripen, warm rivers beckon swimmers, fireflies twinkle, a new school year starts, leaves turn, and winter returns. The poems stand on their own as solidly as they connect to each other, inviting multiple readings to experience the details. Fogliano's (If You Want to See a Whale, 2013) descriptions are laden with imagery, evoking the sensations felt by a change in temperature or the flavor of a blueberry. Complementing the poems are Morstad's gouache and pencil-crayon illustrations, which range from effectively simple (a firefly glowing in the dark) to tantalizingly detailed (spot the inchworm or the ladybug in the shrubs). A multiracial cast of children relishing the delights of the seasons adds to this title's appeal. Pair with Paul B. Janeczko's Firefly July: A Year of Very Short Poems (2014) for another poetic look at the seasons.--Chaudhri, Amina Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In a contemplative tour of the year, Fogliano and Morstad sensitively yet strongly evoke seasonal experiences like standing at the ocean's edge, anticipating sweater weather, and uncovering acres of mud beneath melting snow. The poems-roughly a dozen per season, and all given dates-range from just a few lines ("just like a tiny, blue hello/ a crocus blooming/ in the snow" for March 22) to longer reflections: the July 10 poem that lends the book its title ("when green becomes tomatoes/ there will be sky/ and sun/ and possibly a cloud or two," it begins) reads like it could have been a standalone companion to Fogliano's If You Want to See a Whale. Working in gouache and pencil, Morstad (Swan) creates an appealing, multiracial cast of children in scarves and swimsuits, pajamas and parkas, while helping highlight the way that small things-a sprouting plant, a falling leaf-can herald big changes.
