Product Details

Praise

This poetic conversation with nature over the course of a new green day is friendly and familiar and fresh and surprising, and Portis’s evocative illustrations made with sumi ink, vine charcoal and leaf prints are as elegant and perfectly composed as a snail.”—The New York Times

★ “The power of Portis’s poems, and the surprise each page turn allows, lets readers experience familiar moments with awakened senses, offering them nothing less than a new world filled with fresh experiences.”—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
★ “A playful, thoroughly captivating guessing game for young listeners.” —The Horn Book, Starred Review

★ “ever-so-satisfying . . . In its reverence for each finely described detail, A New Green Day holds a magnifying glass to the wonders, big and small, that are waiting in nature for all to enjoy.”—Shelf Awareness, Starred Review

“Portis’ engaging offering is a lyrical guessing-game tribute to summer and a few of its unique features.”—Booklist

“Mixed-media art involving brush and ink, hand-stamping, and charcoal has digital smoothness, balance, and an elemental feel as each small page focuses tightly on its subject . . . a graceful lyrical readaloud.”The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Very young children will love reading along with adults, who can help them make sense of the sometimes-abstract hints; older kids will have fun making guesses on their own. . . . Simple, poetic, and fun.”—Kirkus Reviews
