This new book is by Joyce Sidman, one of my favorites since I read THIS IS JUST TO SAY. RED SINGS FROM THE TREETOPS: A YEAR IN COLORS is a totally different kind of a book. The book takes us through the colors of the seasons. The book is divided into 4 sections--one for each season. Each page focuses on a color of that season. For example:
Green is new
in spring. Shy.
Green peeks from buds,
trembles in the breeze.
See why I had to have it? Each line is perfect. Each page can stand alone. Or the book can be read from cover to cover going through the year.
