"Mud" by Mary Lyn Ray is about a boy that experiences the seasons as he relates to mud. The books begins with the snow melting. As the snow melts the boy begins to play in the new mud. By the end of the book the hills are covered in green and its. It would be a good book to teach young children about the joys of seasonal change.

Short maybe a little too poetic, describes how earth goes from frozen to mud, and isn't wonderful to squelch your feet in the mud.

This story begins as a mystery would, leading up through descriptive illustrations and words to the subject of the story, mud! Something that is usually thought of as dirty and ugly becomes beautiful and sweet, stirring the senses. Objects such as brown leaves, frozen drifts, flapping wind, scattered stones, pools of grass and hills are made an important part of the natural world and wonders to be observed and enjoyed. Mud and all the ways to play with it stirs the heart of the child and creates a sense of simplistic play and appreciation of all things natural. The illustrations are wonderful!
