From the “boom boom” of a thunderstorm to the “bloom bloom” of flowers, the “buzz buzz” of bees to the “crinkle crunch” of leaves and “swirl swirl” of snow, a sense of whimsy and delight traverses the seasons in this picture book. The couplets describing sights and sounds of each season are set against colorful illustrations showing young children engaged with the natural world. Most of the word choices are satisfying for their onomatopoeia, but one surprising pair near the story’s end is a perfect counterpoint: “Silent silent” as the snow falls. (Ages 2–5)
