A pretty silver and blue shecat padded in, her sharp blue eyes piercing everything she looked at with a nervous but sure gaze." I'm Icelight, and I'd like to join." Around her neck were two necklaces, one made of vines with a silver moon pendant, and the other a string necklace with a vial filled with some substance. On her left front paw was a barely visible silver chain link.

This book won the Caldecott Award and I can see why. I read this book several times and truly enjoyed it. I was taken through a year in colors by imaging all that it had to offer. I enjoyed how this book walked you through the seasons, but not in a way that I have ever read before. It takes you through the seasons during the days and some during the day and night, showing the happenings within the season. I think children of all ages can read this or have it read to them and be able to imagine this colorful and vivid world transform before their eyes. They can compare it to the seasons they have seen and imagine the seasons they have yet experienced and are experiencing for the first time through each page that is turned. The references to the colors and what they mean and how they are compared or used for description is amazing. What that color may look like in our lives through these seasons is just so imaginative. I have never seen this kind of illustration used before, myself and I love the vivid and unique way the illustrator used to images and colors in such a neat and magical way. This is a great book and I suggest it for all children, especially as a learning tool for colors, seasons and for use, to help build their imagination of what these colors and season can look like if you can only imagine them.

This book is beautiful - in words and in pictures. Author Joyce Sidman is able to bring to life mere colors that people might see everyday but might not truly appreciate. With her use of figurative language such as personification and onomatopoeia, Sidman stimulates the physical senses and compels readers to hear, taste, smell, and touch different colors. Although the names of colors are actually colored the corresponding color of the name, readers can vividly see these colors through the eye-catching creations of illustrator Pamela Zagarenski. Such compatibility between Sidman's words and Zagarenski's pictures can only result in a beautiful book that children and even adults can enjoy reading over and over again.

I love this book. The author paints a beautiful picture in your mind of each season. Initially it was the illustrations that drew me in, but after reading it to my son (2 1/2), I found the words to be even more magical.
