When Green Becomes Tomatoes - Poems for All Seasons

As spring begins to tease with its sprouts and thunder, both young and weathered faces glow with anticipation. The intermittent reverence adults feel as a new season approaches is meager in comparison to the unbridled wonder that children experience. Julie Morstad's watercolor illustrations, in a spectrum of colors, depict boys and girls collecting frogs, blueberries, and pumpkins--embracing the new gifts each season offers. 

In "When Green Becomes Tomatoes," Julie Fogliano captures a youthful perception of the transient seasons through journal entries in verse.
