Tell Me a Season
Preview: Hear it

This small and simple concept book describes the colors in a spring morning, a summer day, a fall evening, and a winter night. Four specific scenes lead up to each panoramic doublepage spread that features a farmhouse with a girl and a boy, a cat and a dog. Siddalss appropriately straightforward and economical text is brought to life by Mathers folksy watercolors. . . . It is well done without being overdone, and the size is just right. School Library Journal Cheerful yet elegant, spare yet satisfying, compact yet enveloping: these are hardly the words usually associated with simple concept books for the youngest children. But words and paintings combine to create a season book that surprises to the end. . . . Both author and artist capture the seasons with poetic intensity and wonder, finishing after Winter night with the simplest yet pleasing conclusion: Good night. ALA Booklist A book of simple but deeply gratifying pleasures. Publishers Weekly
