A Beauty! Softly flowing verses about all different colors and how they change throughout the year coupled with whimsical, detailed illustrations done with mixed media, make Red Sings from Treetops a keeper! Zagarenski and Sidman are an award-winning team who have created another winner. I like that Sidman doesn't confine certain colors to certain seasons. For example, white is often thought of as a winter color only. But here, "In SUMMER, white clinks in drinks."
Red is well written with lively, eye catching pictures, and a true Caldecott contender.
