A less elegiac celebration of the countryside and its joys comes in a wonderful collection of poetry for children, 'Sing a Song of Seasons: A Nature Poem for Each Day of the Year' (Nosy Crow, 336 pages, $40)...Children ages 4-12 who pass a year with this book will do so in the thoughtful company of all sorts of poets, from Langston Hughes and Christina Rossetti to Ogden Nash and that most prolific of versifiers, Anonymous.
