Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.
I’ve been interested recently in books about the seasons, or that tie into them in some way. Fogliano and Stead have created a wonderful little book about spring coming, which is just the sort of thing I like. Spare, poetic language (this is how you do poetry in picture books) and spare, gentle illustrations weave together beautifully.
