Earphones Award Winner

Children Ages 4-6 • 30 mins. • Unabridged • © 2010

Joyce Sidman and her dog, Pup, use all their senses to observe nature with the precise poetry that is the author’s hallmark. In spring, “green is new.” Blue radiates in summer with a multitude of descriptive names. “Squishy plums with worms” are the smells of fall’s purple. Against the white of winter, “black seems blacker” and “blue smiles from shadows.” Barbara Caruso uses enunciation and pauses to set off each image. She accentuates the repeated sounds—fall’s brown that “rustles and whispers underfoot” and green that “trills from trees” in summer. She speaks lightly but firmly, moving as Sidman does with excitement from image to image. Engaging light music sets off the poem. A.R.
