Before Morning

There are very few words in Joyce Sidman’s and Beth Krommes’ Before Morning, but more aren’t really needed. The story is simple, and the pictures work with the carefully chosen words to give all the emotional details about what is going on. (more)

Quiet text, busy illustrations, beautiful story.

This is a case, I think, of a perfect meeting of author and illustrator. Sidman's poem is perfectly complemented by Krommes' cozy, detailed illustrations, and I finished this book a) actually looking forward to winter, and b) wishing I lived inside the world portrayed in this book. In a few pages, Sidman and Kromme have created a beautiful tribute to slowing down.
