1. The book does look marvelous. I love that winter poem where it says ‘Their brilliant sisters–Red, Orange, and Yellow–have all gone home.” How great is that! I will have to look this up to see it all. Thank you for all the talk about it, too, and the photo of your daughter-makes it all the more enjoyable.

  2. I have also fallen in love with Joyce Sidman when I read through her Songs of the Water Boatman and Other Pond Poems – have you read that one yet? Absolutely amazing. Thank you so much for sharing this one, as I haven’t read it yet. Will definitely look for this book in our library. BTW, our link-page for the AWB (award-winning-books) reading challenge for January is now up: http://main.gatheringbooks.org/?page_id=230 – we’d love to have you post your link to this review in that page too. 🙂 we’re hoping to build a database of reviews on award winning books.

  3. If there was even ONE comment from a person who didn’t know this book or Joyce Sidman, then it was worth the repeat review! (Wait, review means view again…it doesn’t stipulate how many times!!)

  4. Do you know the classic poetry book about colors, Hailstones and Halibut Bones? I haven’t seen this one yet, but your description reminds me of Hailstones, a book that I love.

  5. Actually, this is new to me, too. Thank you for posting the two poems in their entirety and the reading-in-action photo. You just sold a book! (Maybe more than one after I track down the rest of Ms. Sidman’s work.) -Ed D.
