Bedtime Story: Hi, Koo! A Year of Seasons by Jon J. Muth

Welcome to Children's Book Week
Synopsis: "Caldecott Honoree and NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author/artist Jon J Muth takes a fresh and exciting new look at the four seasons!

Eating warm cookies
on a cold day
is easy

water catches
every thrown stone
skip skip splash

With a featherlight touch and disarming charm, Jon J Muth--and his delightful little panda bear, Koo--challenge readers to stretch their minds and imaginations with twenty-six haikus about the four seasons."

My Review: We loved this book and I can't wait for Munchkin to be able to really appreciate all the levels to read it on. I loved how you could read each of the haikus on their own or as a part of the story, not only that but there is also the elements of the season and a nod to the alphabet within the book. The artwork is beautiful as well. I think it will quickly become a favorite in our house.
My Rating: I really love this book and will continue to read it to Munchkin until I have it memorized.  I give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!


  1. You know... I used to read a lot of picture books. I don't have kids but loved them. I kind of stopped reading them... this book looks like one I would like. I really would read them for the artwork.

    1. I loved reading kids books before Munchkin came along but now I have an excuse to go and get bunches of them! Not only that but he got his first scholastic book club flier this week!! The artwork in this one is beautiful and the haikus are great for kids or adults.
