Nancy Willard seems to be uite the poet as is proven by her Newberry Medal for A Visit to William Blake's Inn Poems for Innocent and Experienced Travelers Within the pages of A Starlit Snowfall she provides such rhythm and rhyme to tease and entertain th senses which makes this book a delight to read aloud With the pictures from one of my favorite artists Jerry Pinkney minutes are sure to pass unwittingly as the imagination is captured and taken to a snowy wintery land unknown in nature Where previously published in hardcover in 1993 as A Starlit Somersault Downhill parents like myself can take something from my elementary years to share with my children Reading through this book with my daughter my imagination is tempted with the hussle of a restless rabbit as he goes forth to adventure and I can only assume AppleBlossom is intrigued as well considering she will not let the book go back on the shelf Definitely one for the R shelf and perhaps season winter as well Thanks to Little Brown Co for providing a copy for reviewOriginally posted
