"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 double-page spread that features a farmhouse with a girl and a boy, a cat and a dog. Siddals's appropriately straightforward and economical text is brought to life by Mather's 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
