Come Next Season

Kim Norman; illustrated by Daniel Miyares

Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)


A gorgeous picture book that celebrates the magic of the seasons and the joys of family.

Come next season . . .
The lake will sparkle.
The leaves will fall from the trees.
We’ll play all day in the snow.
We’ll visit the farm—and maybe make a friend.

Every season is full of its own magic, every change brings new excitement, and every experience is better when it’s shared. With poetic text from bestselling author Kim Norman, brought to life by critically acclaimed illustrator Daniel Miyares, Come Next Season is a celebration of nature, adventure, and family—all year round.
