Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Clear, brightly colored photographs capture the Rocky Mountains in all their splendor-the changes of light, shadow, seasons, and weather, and the animal inhabitants. The book may have some value for potential tourists or as fond remembrances, but it has little information. What facts appear are hidden in between trite descriptive phrasings and a poor attempt at a poetic approach. A small guide to the photographs at the end is almost lost. The last page of text, printed over the snow, is a good example of the failure of the photos and text to work together as a unified whole. A few pages of artful writing describe night shadows and winter winds, but for the most part the narrative reads like bad greeting-card verse. ``Cheery sunrise'' may warm the animals but not the readers. It's too bad that such an attractive cover and photographic study is so short on explanations, answers, and interesting facts.- Susannah Price, Boise Public Library, ID

ger for reading aloud. With a text reminiscent of a PBS nature show, this describes the seasonal changes that occur in the Rocky Mountains. The book begins in the spring. "What awakens sleeping wild creatures? The drip, drip of melting snow? Pale sunlight slanting across the doorway of a burrow?" In summer, first shown in a glorious two-page spread of a wild flower-covered mountain, young animals frolic and cottony clouds drift across the sky. Autumn can bring forest fires, but it is also a time of preparing for winter--some animals gather nuts and other foods, while other creatures eat more so they'll have enough fat to carry them through. In winter, snow storms come and go, leaving huge drifts. The photography is excellent and will certainly draw readers into Burns' evocative chronicle. Although there is not enough information for reports, this attractive piece will give readers a sense of wonder.
