"From the catchy nonsense of X. J. Kennedy's 'Snowflake Souffle' to the simple, surprising imagery of Valerie Worth's 'Sun' to Hopkins's own onomatopoeic 'Thunder,' the short lines, satisfying rhyme, and physicalness of the words can lure beginning readers—and also younger listeners—to the joy of sounds that make sense."—BL.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Come and celebrate the seasons and all the variations weather brings in this breezy collection of poems. From the bright sun shining like a pancake stuck in the sky; to the wind blowing kites and clouds shaped like fluffy sheep, readers can revel in the warmth of spring and summer. Whether a walk in the warm rain, watching fog creep "on little cat feet" or scrunching snow and tasting icicles is more appealing, there are poems to suit all in this "An I Can Read Book."

Grayness

Fog on the river
fog in the trees
gray mist moving
the golden leaves
Willow bending,
dancelike,
long arms trailing,
trancelike.
Gray morning
gray light
gray mist
gray night.

By Charlotte Zolotow
