The youngest child in a rural African-American family expresses her delight with the Earth's vivid show in the ever-changing cycle of seasons. Twenty-six poems written in a young girl's voice celebrate the beauty of nature and the security of family. Jerry Pinkney's detailed pencil, watercolor and pastel paintings perfectly complement the child's exuberant moods within the cozy circle of her family. (Ages 5-8)
