The mix of wonderful poetry from various writers like William Blake, Emily Bronte, Thomas Moore, Walt Whitman beautiful word the experiences of a child traveling from summer through fall. The story depicts the joy of any little boy on the journey through the mysteries & surprises offered as the seasons progress with all a little heart has to discover along the way, baseball, staying up late, vacation, etc.
The boy in the illustrations is so cute and lovable. The book is pulled together with a beautiful and well crafted mix of past and present to present a wonderful work of art any young boy can relate to.
Oelschlager, by weaving in classic poetry with her own beginning and end, finds a way to introduce great poets and poetry to children. I like that the book has the complete poems in the back, plus a brief history of each poet. Kristin Blackwood's illustrations portray the haziness of summer and settled nature of fall perfectly.
