"Time for bed," Mother Earth said. "Not for a while," said her wild child. "A song, first.I need a songto play in my headbefore going to bed."So Mother Earthgave her child a song....But then this wild child wants a snack and PJs and a kiss....Lynn Plourde's text snaps and crackles like the leaves of fall as Mother Earth gently gets her daughter ready for bed. And Greg Couch's extraordinary illustrations take readers from the soft greens of late summer through the fiery oranges of a fall sunset to the peaceful blues of early winter's eve. Wild children and their parents will revel in this scrumptious, loving tribute to the wonders of nature and of family.

Absolutely love this beautiful book and so does my daughter. I wish the library had all four in the series but Winter Waits follows this so well. I recently purchased this book because it was so well loved and still available. It is one I pull out seasonally.

This is a particularly lovely book for those of earth based religion. The illustrations are well thought out and the story follows the seasonal changes as if they are Mother Earth's children. Both my 5 year old and 8 year old enjoyed this one.
