The Return of Green

It's spring at last! For some reason, this past winter seemed longer, more entrenched, reluctant to leave us. Today's book choice grants promise and hope to all seasons, winter included.

RED SINGS FROM TREETOPS A year in colors. By Joyce Sidman, illustrated by Pamela Zagarenski. Houghton Mifflin Books for Children. 2009

Can you feel color, hold it in your hand, hear it sing? What if you could?

Author Sidman’s flowing rhymes and artist Zagarenski’s vivid and playful art join hands and skip through a year of seasons.

Turn your senses loose and enjoy!

My favorite quote from the book: "Where is green in winter? Green waits in the hearts of trees."

Welcome back, Green!
