Red Sings from Treetops: a year in colors* by
Illustrator: Pamela Zagarenski
Houghton Mifflin Books for Children, 2009
Reading Level 2.4
Seasons, colors, nature
Beginning with the "cheer, cheer, cheer" of "red" singing in the spring treetops, Sidman describes each season via sights, sounds, feelings, and colors. In somewhat of a circle-story fashion, winter brings the reader back to red singing in the treetops. Color words are highlighted in boxes while written in the colors they name.
