The author of Around the Oak celebrates the passing of the seasons, with illustrations of children ice skating, playing on the beach, jumping into a pile of leaves, and planting a garden.

PreS?Originally published in the Netherlands as four separate books, this heartwarming unified edition brings the seasons together, starting and ending with the idea that "The seasons form a circle." The text describes visiting baby animals, cooling off in the water, noticing apples ripening, and getting frozen toes. It perfectly captures the seasonal joys and pleasures of childhood, thereby creating a universal sense of the passage of time. The pace of the book, which includes two wordless spreads per season along with individual vignettes, is slow and soothing. Each page invites readers to observe and ponder. The illustrations, with their cream-colored backgrounds, are warm and attractive, almost idyllic, and yet energetic enough to seem real. Transitions between the times of year are marked by beautifully designed title pages. Both Christmas and Hanukkah are mentioned at the end. A good choice for quiet sharing.?Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI

Ages 2^-6. Originally published in the Netherlands as four separate books, Muller's picture book uses tender paintings and a few sentences to explore the "special joys" of the seasons. Lush, wordless double-page spreads as well as small pictures grouped nicely on a page show children of many races playing outdoors among the birds, animals, flowers, and foliage of the season. The illustrations are sweet without being saccharine (a snowman is realistically sprinkled with bits of grass and other debris), and Muller skillfully captures the special way that light appears at different times of the year--spring skies seem golden and balmy; winter skies are steely and cold. Books on the seasons abound, but be sure to make room for this one. Susan Dove Lempke
