Staff Pick

Jessica Courtney-Tickle’s gorgeous visual interpretation of Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons begins as a sleeping girl named Isabelle awakens. She collects a tiny apple tree and her puppy, Pickle, and embarks upon an accelerated journey through the seasons that takes only a single day. Beginning with spring and an unexpected shower, Isabelle and Pickle then travel though summer, autumn, and winter in turn. “Press Here” music notes on every page play brief selections from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. The Story Orchestra: Four Seasons in One Day (Frances Lincoln, $22.99) is an ingenious and accessible way to introduce young children to some of the most enduring music ever composed. Ages 5-8.
