Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A cover flap with an embedded kaleidoscopic lens and turning wheel cleverly transforms this lyrical tour of the seasons into an actual kaleidoscope. By positioning the flap above the die-cut right-hand pages and turning the lens, readers can view geometric shapes change their form, making an umbrella twirl in the rain, a star shimmer in the night sky, and steam rise above an apple pie. Brief, rhyming phrases have a sense of movement of their own: “Twinkling sunlight,/ leaves crisscrossing./ Prickly seedpods/ gently tossing.” Striking and highly inventive, this is a visual delight. Ages 3–up. Agent: Jamie Weiss Chilton, Andrea Brown Literary Agency. (Apr.)

Kirkus Reviews
Gorgeous patterns peel away layers of color and depth within this kaleidoscope. A die-cut circle frames the center of the device, and each turn of the page adds a different, textured nuance with scallops and points. Viewing the shapes and colors with the textured lens embedded in the cover causes them to emulate the effect of a real kaleidoscope. The text takes readers through the seasons, turn by turn, as leaves drop, rain falls, and snowflakes drift to the ground. The typography swirls and swoops, contributing to the feeling of movement both visually and linguistically. "Steeping, steaming, / lemon squeezing. / Tipping, pouring, / soothing, pleasing." The words mimic the movements of the steam, floating up from the cup. Bold backgrounds extend from one side of the scene to the next. Mechanically, the manipulation of the embedded lens is a challenge, the wheel requiring more coordination than the toddler set can provide. Due to the small parts included, the warning label discourages children younger than 3 from independently poring over these pages. Dazzling designs and the dexterity required gears these bright glimpses toward preschoolers rather than toddlers. (Board book. 3-4)
