PreS—Slegers's characteristically vivid and whimsical illustrations bring charm to these board books. Each one begins with a child describing his or her seasonally appropriate outdoor attire. The narrator then highlights familiar objects, such as leaves and acorns in the fall and sleds and snowmen in winter. "This is snow. The snow is falling down. Look! I made some big snowballs." Text is large and clearly presented on a white background with a small image above. A larger, related image fills the opposing page with bright color and cheer. These books offer just the right balance of comfort and excitement for the youngest readers.—Amelia Jenkins, Juneau Public Library, AK [Page 86]. (c) Copyright 2012.
