Hello Winter!

Hello Winter! 32p. glossary. Holiday House. Oct. 2018. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9780823439768.
PreS-Gr 2—The sights, smells, and feelings of winter come alive in the vivid photographic illustrations found in this latest from Rotner. As the days get shorter, winter begins to set in, bringing with it chilly weather, crystalline snowflakes, and memorable celebrations. Readers are introduced to myriad activities associated with the season in the text and images. Whether or not the activities are familiar, new vocabulary and concepts are easily understood thanks to the thoughtful design of each spread. The text is composed of short words and phrases, making this book accessible to a wide range of readers. Select words are emphasized in color within each sentence throughout the text, from the deep red of fall through the blues of winter to the fresh green of spring; serving to link Rotner's other season-themed titles together. The descriptive text couples beautifully with the vibrant illustrations to create a nearly tangible winter wonderland.
VERDICT An excellent addition to most nonfiction collections, especially as a companion to Rotner's other works.
