If Winter comes, tell it I'm not here (Hardback Book aged 4-7yrs)
Nothing is better than summer - swimming every day and eating ice cream!
But one little boy's big sister has news for him. Summer is going to end soon and winter is coming. And when it arrives, she says, it will be cold and dark and rainy all the time... They’ll be stuck on the sofa for days and won’t even dream of eating ice cream...EEK!
This book celebrates the changing of the seasons, showing just how much joy can be found around each and every (sunny - or snowy!) corner.
Ciraolo’s pencil and watercolor illustrations are rich with dynamic facial expressions, dramatically colored imaginings, and energetic lines, all of which communicate the boy’s wide spectrum of emotions as he dreads, discovers, and finally delights in each new season.
A crocus poking up through the snow on the final spread symbolizes the inevitability of change and the happiness that can be found all throughout the year.
