Review
Preschool Poet Ghigna catalogs the many sights of the winter season, from changes in the natural world to traditional outdoor pastimes to celebrations of Christmas. The simple, seven-syllable lines of gentle, lilting rhyme proceed at just the right clip for preschoolers eagerly anticipating the season’s pleasures (“I see sleds and pairs of skates. / I see icy figure eights”). Jatkowska’s bright, textured illustrations have a wide appeal, with round-faced, ruddy-cheeked figures populating wintry scenes punched up with warming reds, pinks, and greens. While the illustrations’ figures are diverse, the book’s emphasis on the secular traditions of Christmas is less inclusive. The subject matter is a natural choice for seasonal storytimes, but the book’s smaller size and detailed artwork make this rewarding one-on-one reading, especially for those who look forward to the first snowflakes of the year. And for those of us who don’t, there are three other seasons in the I See series to keep us busy until the spring thaw. -- McKulski, Kristen (Reviewed 12-15-2011) (Booklist, vol 108, number 8)
