When Green Becomes Tomatoes: Poems for All Seasons

                                                           by Julie Fogliano

This is a collection of poems throughout the seasons. All are free verse and very sweet and accessible for kids. The illustrations by Julie Morstad are a perfect match, following a little girl through the rain, snow, sun and chill. Here's a sample poem:

                                                       may 10
                                                     lilac sniffing
                                                     is what to do
                                                     with a nose
                                                     when it is may
                                                     and there are lilacs
                                                     to be sniffed
