Sweet accounts of peaceful family life through each season of a year. It's written for children, but the illustrations and sensory details are pleasant and calming for adults too.

I found some of these stories incredibly sweet, some sad and/or touching, some painful or cruel, and some felt rather . . . pointless. Not that a story exactly has to have a point - certainly I enjoy a good vignette or slice-of-life - but a few of these didn't even feel like there was much of a window or draw to them in that vein.

There is, also, of course, some mention of animal cruelty and animal death, and some that was probably not intended to read as animal cruelty, exactly (a fair few things have changed in how we treat animals or think of as acceptable treatment in the past 40 years), but was still less than comfortable.

'Planting Things' was definitely my favourite in the collection.

Stumpy Squirrel has just settled into a new nest in a magnificent pin oak in Gooseberry Park. It's the perfect spot for her babies to be born! When they arrive healthy and strong, Stumpy's three good friends--a Labrador retriever, a wise hermit crab, and a bat--are thrilled.

But after a terrible ice storm destroys the pin oak, Stumpy disappears. It takes a special combination of courage, humor, and tenacity for Stumpy's friends to rescue her babies and bring her home again.

Cynthia Rylant and Barry Moser both grew up in Appalachia. Together, author and illustrator present us with a gentle yet poignant picture, in words and images, of the people of Appalachia--their homes, food, dogs, surroundings, and views of the world.
