“Look at winter / with winter eyes...” begins the first poem in this collection of 36 short poems. Florian gives young readers a strong sense of winter through icy images and subdued illustrations rendered in watercolors and colored pencils. His childlike perspective on the snowy season includes poems about sledding, icicles, tracks, snowmen, ice fishing and skating. Two complementary poems “What I Love about Winter” and “What I Hate about Winter” may inspire some budding writers to write their own winter poems. (Ages 4-10)
