Walking Through the Seasons

Observations and Reflections

Walking through the Seasons is a compilation of the author's monthly newspaper essays that won an Independent Publisher's (IPPY) gold medal for best Northeastern non-fiction. It's the book you'll want to have on your bed stand. Leading the reader on an year-long nature walk, the words awaken and delight the senses, and somehow provide reassurance.

In the author's words, "It is my hope that parents and educators will support the instinctive connection that children make with the natural world and that all who may need it will find joy, solace and sensibility in the changing seasons."
