Pick of the Week: Seasons by Blexbolex

Seasons by Blexbolex (Enchanted Lion Books)
This is a sophisticated, distinctive picture book that will invite readers to visit the pages again and again. Each page in this longer picture book has a poster-like retro quality with creamy matte pages and block prints with one word denoting the feeling or scene depicted. We see a man pointing to a window looking out on snowflakes falling for the word "shout" and a snow-covered house or lodge depicting the word "snow." A diversity of great vocabulary words are featured including fragrance, drought, blaze, barbeque, debris, discovery, hay bales, shooting stars, reserves, fruit pickers, seedling, twilight and many more. This is a stunning, breathtaking, and contemplative book that both children and adults may enjoy.
