PreS-Gr 2–Norman’s brief, lyrical text accompanied by Miyares’s colorful, equally poetic illustrations records a cycle of seasons. As a brother and sister anticipate the joys awaiting them on the calendar pages they share memories of previous seasons. Memories of eating “buttery bites” of corn on the cob while “smacking mosquitoes” in summer, choosing to be “out” of doors in the fall and “in” come winter, and getting a “fuzzy friend” with “silky ears” in spring. Family oriented, gently appealing with its bright pages recording the certainty of a year in procession, this is a year-round celebration.
VERDICT A book for all seasons, perfect for individual or small group sharing.
