9780152024673: The Blue Hill Meadows

Willie Meadow lives with his mother, father, and brother in Blue Hill, Virginia. It’s peaceful there—a perfect place for growing up. And for the Meadow family, each season of the year holds something special. Like the puppies born to their beloved dog one summer, a fishing trip on a crisp October day, or the thrill of a rare winter blizzard. Delicate illustrations and evocative text in a book so full of warmth and charm that you might find yourself wishing you, too, could live in Blue Hill—or at least visit for a good long while.

ELLEN BEIER lives in Corvallis, Oregon.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5. In four short chapters, Rylant introduces the Meadows: Sullivan, Eva, and their two boys Ray and Willie. They live in Blue Hill, Virginia, where things move slowly and a family has time to "just be." As always, Rylant writes with grace. Her spare style effortlessly creates a sense of place, rich in homey, happy details. The watercolor and acrylic illustrations, done mostly in blues and lavenders, contribute to the gentle tone. Each chapter is set in a different season, creating a nice balance to the pacing and bringing the end back to the beginning. However, for all its loveliness, there is a detached quality to the narration that makes it read more like a sweet dream than a here-and-now story. Willie is the only character who ever develops a personality, which is a shame since the joy of adopting a stray pet, the excitement of a fishing trip, the worry about being stuck at a teacher's house during a blizzard, and agonizing over the perfect gift for Mom are all experiences that would appeal to children. Perhaps the biggest problem this book will face is finding an audience. It would be best appreciated by older readers, but it will be most attractive to the beginning chapter-book crowd, who may struggle with the language and pace. If this book is placed into the right hands, its readers will be treated to a lazy, gentle year with a really nice family.?Patricia A. Dollisch, DeKalb County Public Library, Decatur, GA
