"In Summer, White clinks in drinks. Yellow melts everything it touches... smells like butter, tastes like salt." In Red Sings From the Treetops, Joyce Sidman takes you on a beautiful journey of the seasons that stimulates the senses. You can almost feel the seasons as she describes them and await each color and how she'll relate it to the season.
I enjoyed reading this book to myself and was engaged by how Sidman describes the seasons using color. This is a great book for a read-aloud in grades 1-3. The opportunities for discussion about what Sidman is saying are endless (What does she mean when she says, "In the winter woods, Gray and Brown hold hands. Their brilliant sisters- Red, Orange, and Yellow- have all gone home."
Pamela Zagarenski's illustration will help younger students to understand the poetry even more.
