A Spotlight on Summer Reading for Children:
Green on Green
Written by Dianne White,
Illustrated by Felicita Sala
Simon & Schuster, Publisher
"A child is on a colorful journey through the seasons, filled with yellow flowers and blue coral in spring and summer and orange pumpkins and green pine forests in fall and winter. All the while, there is another colorful change on the horizon—the birth of a new sibling.
With gentle, rhyming text and vivid artwork, this book is a heartfelt celebration of family, nature, seasons, colors, and the wonder and magic of them all."
Simon & Schuster, Publisher
