The Cycle of the Seasons Poetry Collection - CYCLE-SEASONS

Learn about family, community, and caring for each other and the world in which we live through a series of bilingual seasonal poems by renowned poet and educator, Francisco Alarcón, and the vibrant illustrations of Maya Christina Gonzalez. Partly based on Alarcón's own dreams and growing up in Mexico and California, memories of family and community as well as moments and figures in history are interwoven with reflections on natural phenomena. This four-book series offers readers a wide-ranging yet personal exploration of the magical cycle of the seasons.
