I would use book for grades 3rd-5th grade as an interactive read-aloud because it has beautiful illustrations that I feel all students should see. These grades are appropriate for teaching poetry and culture that are shown in this book. By using this book as an interactive read-aloud I can have students use their background knowledge to make predictions, students can use the illustrations to infer and they can use key-details in the book to understand the ancient culture and poetry.

This poetry book goes through many things throughout life. These things are like wind and rain, life and death, night and dark.

I thought this book had an interesting and deep meaning. Great for children to read and comprehend.

An absolutely glorious book. Incredible illustrations from immensely different styles of art from all over the world. Worth buying, keeping and reading to children for centuries to come.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0590478877, Hardcover)

Leo and Diane Dillon have collaborated on 40 illustrated books and won a shelfful of major awards for their artistic work, including two Caldecott Medals. No surprise, then, that this book is a feast for the eyes--but it's remarkable even by their exalted standards. The text, printed in large, clear capitals along the bottom of the pages, consists simply of the famous verses from Ecclesiastes: "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die...." Each phrase is illustrated by one of 16 panels, and each panel stems from the artistic style of a different culture, from Egyptian tomb friezes, to Japanese harvest scenes, to Aboriginal bark paintings, to Greek vase paintings. The rich, sophisticated illustrations may appeal more to parents than to their children--and verses like "a time to kill" may be too much for the very young--but there could be no more beautiful vehicle for the old wisdom that we have to know, expect, and live with both the good and the bad that life will inevitably bring us. At the end of the book the authors provide interesting information on the style and the art history behind each illustration. (Click to see a sample spread.

Presents that selection from Ecclesiastes which relates that everything in life has its own time and season.
