Description

In spring, Red sings from treetops: cheer-cheer-cheer, each note dropping like a cherry into my ear. Sleepy Yellow sticks to summer. Yet ocean Blue stays cool and alive. Green fades in fall, turns to dust, and no longer keeps Brown at bay. In winter, Pink blossoms on chilled cheeks. And Black echoes through the still of winter's night. But spring comes again, and Red returns-flitting and fluttering, bright as a Cardinal bird. Winner of a Caldecott Honor, this delightful book of free verse poems by celebrated poet Joyce Sidman is "a charming inspiration to notice colors and correlate emotions" (Kirkus Reviews). With each verse of Barbara Caruso's spellbinding narration, children and adults alike will appreciate the colors of the seasons. ". as the title implies, the colors that surprise on every page do sing."-Booklist, starred review

Professional reviews

"Joyce Sidman and her dog, Pup, use all their senses to observe nature with the precise poetry that is the author's hallmark. In spring, "green is new." Blue radiates in summer with a multitude of descriptive names. "Squishy plums with worms" are the smells of fall's purple. Against the white of winter, "black seems blacker" and "blue smiles from shadows." Barbara Caruso uses enunciation and pauses to set off each image. She accentuates the repeated sounds--fall's brown that "rustles and whispers underfoot" and green that "trills from trees" in summer. She speaks lightly but firmly, moving as Sidman does with excitement from image to image. Engaging light music sets off the poem. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
