Publisher Comments:

Young children see the passage of time through the seasonal changes to the world around them in this charming book, illustrated with Nikki McClure's extraordinary cut-paper art.

A little boy who can't wait for summer keeps asking his mama, "Is it summer yet?" Mama says, "Not yet, little one," then points to the signs that spring is turning to summer — the softening of the earth, the nest-building of squirrels, the singing of birds — and encourages her son to savor the beauty of spring.

Following the success of All in a Day, Nikki McClure once again uses her unique paper cutouts to showcase wonderful images of nature and the joys of family and the outdoors, creating a book that is both timeless and fresh.

Review:

"A handsome, effective piece of bookmaking that captures the glory of a day and the possibilities it holds." Booklist (starred review)

Review:

"This uplifting picture book succeeds in introducing children to the perennial promise of tomorrow through lithe language and honed imagery." Kirkus (starred review)

Synopsis:

Gather, Navigate, Welcome, Fortify, Surrender, Save, Listen, Make Mistakes. These are some of the messages renowned artist Nikki McClure affirms in this gorgeous monograph of her paper cuts. Organized by season, these delicate pieces exude an optimism that revolves around community, sustenance, parenting, and appreciating both urban and rural landscapes. McClureand#8217;s work reminds us of the important things: the change of seasons, slowing down the world for a moment so we can actually taste it, looking up at the stars to dream.

This reissue of the 2007 art book includes 64 pages of new, breathtaking art. At a smaller trim size than the original, this volume makes the perfect gift.

About the Author

Nikki McClure is a self-taught artist who has been making paper-cuts since 1996. She is the author and illustrator of Abrams' Collect Raindrops and the illustrator of All In a Day, by Cynthia Rylant. Kirkus said her "illustrations make such nebulous concepts as hope and renewal accessible to young readers," and Publishers Weekly said children will enjoy "the tenderness of McClure’s images." She lives in Olympia, Washington.

Craig Ensz, October 6, 2010 (view all comments by Craig Ensz)
A captivating story of the questions and mysteries of childhood. A picture and storybook full of the wonders and discoveries of a young boy. One day will bring you more joy than you expect. Mama is quaint and thought provoking at the same time. Sit down with your children and pass a day in this book with them.
