We’re in the midst of a white winter wonderland in Wisconsin. But for those who long for something green, you’ll find it, in all its many shades, in this lovely picture book. Author/artist Seeger combines simple rhyming text, lush paint-on-canvas illustrations and with cleverly positioned cut out accents, inviting readers to explore and enjoy the presence (and sometimes absence) of green in nature and in everyday objects. Readers will want to turn the pages back and forth for a closer look, talk about the objects they discover, and compare lime to sea green to khaki to cool fern. Seeger’s work may inspire budding artists to create their own projects. Beginning readers can master the text to satisfaction. Mostly, it’s a great book to share with a little one on your lap, on a cold winter day-- or anytime!
Recommended for ages 3 and up.
