Review: Swing Around the Sun

User Review  - Jessica - Goodreads

The pictures really reflect the poems (for example, they pictures are fuzzy and gloomy in the March and rainy poems and the pictures are clear and bright for the summer). The illustrations are just beautiful and the language is also. This book does a good job portraying nature and the seasons. Read full review
