Grade 1-4-Nicholls shows herself to be a master anthologist, joining the likes of X. J. Kennedy or Lee Bennett Hopkins, in her choice of poems that are both wonderful and accessible to children. The selections range over time and cultures, but each one shines in its crisp vision of the natural world. A Czech poet describes winter: "In the night,/Came a white horse to visit,/His hooves made no sound/As he covered the ground,/And snow filled the land with its spirit." Krommes's extraordinary scratchboard-and-watercolor illustrations extend the mood of each poem. A book to warm the soul of any poetry lover.Kathleen Whalin, York Public Library, ME
