Seasons of Joy starts off with Spring. It shares with the children some of the wonderful outdoor activities. It is fun and the illustrations are just so captivating, even during bad weather, the children feel like they are part of the season. Not only do the children get to see what is special about each season, but this book is written in such a poetic way, the children can really feel it. For example, the snow in winter is like a nice fluffy blanket. For me, poetry is so important in education. It helps kids see and think out of the box, and Seasons of Joy really takes the best of everything in this book.
