An artful exploration of the seasons. ... This is a lovely poetic encounter in both word and image.
[A] lovely oversize board book... First and foremost it is an art book, showcasing Bowers’s appealing graphic-, almost impressionistic, style paintings. ... This offering is as bright and ephemeral as a pear blossom.
