“White dazzles day and turns night inside out.”
"Red Sings from Treetops" by Joyce Sidman and illustrations by Pamela Zagarenski is a Caldecott-winning picture book (P). You can teach the seasons, especially as an RA. It artistically describes each month and its climate in terms of colors, showing descriptive writing, non-rhyming poetry, and seasonal changes. Teachers can use can help students think about the seasons where they live, which satisfies UDL Engagement (7.2).
#FallIntoReading Day 20: Each line in this book leaves an imprint, an echo of the seasons. Zagarenski does each dripping, crunchy, windswept line so much justice with her distinctive art. I love how the colors speak, taste, and touch the winds, the leaves, the gnarled branches. Each page is a gift from summer and spring, winter and #autumn, but my favorite is the contrast of Black and White in the fall. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-57A
Red Sings from Treetops: A year in colors by Joyce Sidman & illustrated by Pamela Zagarenski is a beautiful P Caldecott Honor picture book. Color comes to life through poems, taking you on a visual journey through the seasons and the changing landscape throughout the year. Having students either be assigned a color or season could make this a great RT. #UCFLAE3414F17
