This poetry collection is just a delight! The poems appear simple upon a first read, but are surprisingly complex. The illustrations are simply gorgeous. The "September 10" page spread is my favorite, though "January 30" is a close second. Covering all four seasons, this makes a lovely gift book for the whole family to snuggle up on the couch and share together. It's another that I want to give to everyone I know.

When Green Becomes Tomatoes by Julie Fogliano ($18.99, Roaring Brook Press), recommended by Amanda, Hooray for Books, Alexandria, VA.
