Really nice book with gentle open ended discussion questions. WE loved the illustrations the best. The Author/Artist explains his technique in detail and we will definitely be using this book to spring board into a summer painting project. Nicely done! ( )

I love, love, love the illustrations. The texture is amazing. The composition is understated but thoughtful and pleasing, and the colors are bright but not at all crayon-boxy. The technique (acrylic paint stamped onto paper with cardboard shapes) would be super fun to share with kids.

I am feeling too grown-up and pragmatic today, however, to enjoy the questions. ("How do birds learn how to sing? / What brings summer after spring?") I was hoping for more imaginative ones, but I understand that for younger listeners these questions are still full of mystery. I'd bring it out for teachers looking for writing prompts.

A series of unanswerable questions are posed, with poetic responses and sparkling illustrations. ( )

Simple, thoughtful and artistic. Guaranteed to elicit questions.

"How do birds learn how to sing? What brings summer after spring? What turns leaves from green to brown and sends them floating gently down?"
