This is a book of over 40 poems about the seasons. Mostly told through the eyes of a child.

I would recommend this book for children K-3 grade. It has simple words for children learning to read the verses are clever, full of emotions, and entertaining. It is a book that is easily understood for younger children not yet able to read.

Very sweet poems about the seasons. They're short enough that beginning readers (and even more advanced readers) won't get bored. The vocabulary and rhyme is charming, simple but not dum dum... May even give them a nudge to draw what they've read : )

A great book of beginning poems with beautiful illustrations. I think my favorites were "First Snow" and "The Crickets."

I liked these poems.

One that I read was A small pine tree. It reminded me of this little Christmas tree I used to have.

I love this book of poetry. The poems are so simple,but poignant. It is a great introductory tool to poetry and the seasons.
