Each month brings something new and different in this classic rhyme about the changing seasons

From School Library Journal:

PreS Up An illustrated edition of Coleridge's childhood poem first published in 1834, this purports to be a view of the changing seasons "through a child's eyes." With its nostalgic muted watercolors, the book is certainly a feast for adult eyes. Although the rhyme may be familiar to adults as a Mother Goose verse, young children may not respond well to some unfamiliar vocabulary, e.g., "Hot July brings cooling showers, /Apricots and gillyflowers." One illustration does not match the accompanying verse: "Warm September brings the fruit, /Farmers dig the turnip root" is illustrated by a scene of cows grazing near an apple orchard. Most scenes are lush country landscapes; only one month is illustrated with a scene that includes people, and no children are pictured at all. Oliver's illustrations create a quiet view of each month captured in the misty stillness of memory. Lacking the liveliness to appeal to children, the book is perhaps better suited to the same adults who enjoy looking through an attractively illustrated calendar.Yvonne A. Frey, Peoria Pub .
