One of my favorite books from children's author Cynthia Rylant. The Blue Hill Meadows shares a slice of life from the Meadow Family in country side of West Virginia. The book is divided into 4 short stories which are set in the four seasons of the year. Perfect summer reading. Ages 7-10
Snow Toward Evening: A Year in a River Valley - A wonderful book of seasonal poetry with vivid paintings by Thomas Locker. This selection of shorter length poems for each season is a lovely introduction to poetry for the younger crowd.
