Twenty-five poems evoke possibilities of the season - its weather, bird-watching, skiing, moon, deer, geese, even its germs, as well as its indoor warmth. It's the warmth that readers of this incomparable anthology can experience, the warmth resulting from reading or hearing superb classic poetry in many voices and forms; from seeing pictures of a home, its people, its work and its pleasure; from noticing landscapes and families in new ways. Hyman's paintings reproduced in full color on every page were rendered in acrylics on illustration board, contributing significantly to the excellence of the appealing volume. (Ages 5-14)
