I expected this to be poetic but simple and I wasn't disappointed, although I must say when I "opened" the book and the first thing I saw was a brown rectangle and a green rectangle and they said simply "Soil is Brown," and "Grass is Green," I thought I was in for serious disgust that this was published. But the author takes us through colorful nature and seasons and beautifully ends with "the sun will come back in the morning." The pictures look like children drew them, which held even my 7mo's attention, and I was looking at them myself trying to figure out if they were watercolors or computer generated or colored pencil. I still haven't figured it out.
This is a lovely little book for pre-k to talk about weather, nature, colors, and seasons. Every mom should have this in her arsenal.
