Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
A poetic tribute to America is framed within the loving and supportive metaphoric relationship between mother and child. The landscapes portrayed range from the Pacific forests and shores, past mountains, deserts, prairies, and the Mississippi, to the East Coast, and through autumn into winter. At each juncture the child is included, for "You are part of me and I am part of you." The oil painted scenes are somewhat idealized. They fill most of each double page spread with a portrait of America to admire, while a small illustration, usually including a child, is near the text, complete the loving picture. 2000, Hyperion Books for Children, Ages 4 to 8, $15.99. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-A poetic tribute to the special relationship between a mother and daughter. Each page highlights a different aspect of geography or seasons, such as California forests, the Rockies, Florida swamps, and northern winters, and relates it to the stages of growing up and their relationship. ("I am a cove, an inlet apart from the storms,/a shelter when you wish to come home.") This is a lovely mood piece with poignant metaphors and tender phrases. Warm, inviting oil paintings capture the spirit of each scene. The landscapes fill a full page and a quarter and there is an additional thumbnail sketch of the daughter above each block of text. There is no story or plot here, and the intended readers would likely be a very precocious child or a sentimental adult. A charming gift book for a special occasion, but not a first purchase for most libraries.-Beth Tegart, Oneida City Schools, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
