In a contemplative tour of the year, Fogliano and Morstad sensitively yet strongly evoke seasonal experiences like standing at the oceans edge, anticipating sweater weather, and uncovering acres of mud beneath melting snow. The poemsroughly a dozen per season, and all given datesrange from just a few lines (just like a tiny, blue hello/ a crocus blooming/ in the snow for March 22) to longer reflections: the July 10 poem that lends the book its title (when green becomes tomatoes/ there will be sky/ and sun/ and possibly a cloud or two, it begins) reads like it could have been a standalone companion to Foglianos If You Want to See a Whale. Working in gouache and pencil, Morstad (Swan) creates an appealing, multiracial cast of children in scarves and swimsuits, pajamas and parkas, while helping highlight the way that small thingsa sprouting plant, a falling leafcan herald big changes. Ages 610. Illustrators agent: Emily Van Beek, Folio Literary Management. (Mar.)
