This gorgeous book of poetry carries us through the year in first-person, narrative free verse. Brimming with charming pictures and cleaver poems, When Green Becomes Tomatoes is a powerfully written collection that encompasses the familiar signs, feelings, and behaviors the natural world embodies during the turning of the seasons. - Jana— Jana
and i woke to a morning
that was quiet and white
the first snow
(just like magic) came on tip toes
Flowers blooming in sheets of snow make way for happy frogs dancing in the rain. Summer swims move over for autumn sweaters until the snow comes back again. In Julie Fogliano's skilled hand and illustrated by Julie Morstad's charming pictures, the seasons come to life in this gorgeous and comprehensive book of poetry.
