Title Winter EyesAuthorIllustrator Douglas FlorianGenre PoetryThemes Winter SeasonsOpening linesentence Look at winterWith winter eyesAs smoke curls from rooftopsTo clear cobalt skies Brief Book Summary This book is a collection of 28 poems that talk about wintertime While all of the poems have something in common each one addresses something different about wintertime from what the season physically looks like to the activities that people do during winter to how the author himself feels about winter personally etc Florian relies heavily on the use of his five senses to create a collection of short rhyming poems that are accompanied by fitting watercolor illustrationsProfessional RecommendationReview 1 Hazel Rochman Booklist November 1 1999 Vol 96 No 5 Small uiet poems and pictures capture how winter feels to a small child especially the physicalness of it from sloppy slush to grumpy sun and the wind that hustles rusty leaves along The short rhyming lines are clear and will be easy to read aloud and the softly toned watercolor and colored pencil pictures show snowy winter scenes some realistic some playful Opposite a poem about the amount of wool to wear in winter there s a wry picture showing people turning into sheep There are things people love about winter Snowball fights Fireplace nights as well as things they hate Frozen toes Running nose and children may want to add their own wintry images Professional RecommendationReview 2Deborah Stevenson The Bulletin of the Center for Children s Books November 1999 Vol 53 No 3 In twenty eight crisp poems Florian urges readers to look at winter With winter eyes appreciating the oft derided season s peculiar charms While he s not unsympathetic to the frustrations What I Love about Winter is followed by What I Hate about Winter he makes an excellent case for the pleasures in the sound of Winter Songs the palette of Winter Hues the coziness of Winter Inside and the joys of Sugaring Time The verses largely stick to reliable couplets and ABAB patterns as clean edged and directive as a neatly shoveled walk but Florian occasionally wends the text around the page for conceptual play Sled tracks up and down a hill Framed illustrations varying in size decorate the poetry they keep winter involved as a pale reminder but the images are touched with orange and blue brown and peach and shot through with smudgy meandering lines occasionally reminiscent of Patricia Polacco that write character across the landscape Whether as a read aloud or a read alone this is a snowball youngsters won t mind being hit withResponse to Two Professional ReviewsI support the praise each reviewer gives Winter Eyes Florian captures the essence of winter wonderfully in both the text and the accompanying illustrations Florian does a wonderful job of demonstrating how to think about a topic in many different ways from the use of his five senses to the presentation of his personal opinions and vivid descriptions The beautiful watercolor illustrations offer the text great support in additionEvaluation of Literary ElementsThe consistent A B rhyming pattern Florian employs in each of his short concise poems will appeal to young readers immensely Florian s use of repetition and short to the point statements is purposefully implemented to help children develop fluency and an understanding of poetry as a genre The majority of the text takes a long rectangular and vertical shape but various poems are formatted to match the content of the poem which readers will find extremely entertaining ie to evoke images of falling snowflakes circling ice skates and the course a sled takesConsideration of Instructional ApplicationThis text is ideal for kindergarten or first graders As a teacher I would use Winter Eyes to introduce winter in a Science unit surrounding the four seasons I could either read a new poem each day or choose a specific poem to center an entire English Language Arts lesson around For example I could read What I Love About Winter and then have the Kindergarteners draw a picture illustrating their favorite activity or activities to partake in during the winter months They could then write or dictate an explanation of the illustration On another note this text is also ideal to use when introducing poetry as a genre seeing as the poems are simple and all follow an almost identical pattern
