picture books for a rainy Thursday

MAMA WILL IT SNOW TONIGHT is a lyrical, spare text with animals and human children asking when the snows will come. Illustrations gleam with colors that change as the season gradually gives way from fall to winter.

in PUMPKIN BUTTERFLY raccoons carouse, squirrels chitter as they fling themselves from branch to branch, and throats grow horse. Poems range from celebrations of fall and winter to spring and summer. Homage is paid to Charles Darwin to cherries and lightning and to mosquitoes and lightning bugs. Perfect for reading aloud and for class study.
