About this title


A short verse for each month of the year encourages the reader to find objects hidden in the pictures that depict that month's activities, such as ear muffs and pine trees in January, or scooters and a picnic bench in June.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 1. Whether the month-by-month scenes in this book of picture puzzles portray ice skaters on a "pond glazed with ice" or sun worshipers at the beach, the invitation to locate seasonally appropriate objects (listed at the bottom of each spread) will keep children firmly engaged. Blackstone's accompanying verses ("Move into May, come along with me! It's time to make our gardens grow--what can you see?") are less buoyant than Sendak's monthly ditties in Chicken Soup with Rice (1962), and some youngsters may find distinguishing certain months difficult without references to exclusively American holidays, such as Independence Day, Halloween, and Thanksgiving, which the U.K.-based publisher has opted not to include. Still, Carluccio's collage-and-paint artwork, with embellishments snipped from gift wrap, topographical maps, and even doctors' prescription pads, contributes enough busy texture to heighten the seek-and-find challenge. Creative teachers will find inspiration here to launch a calendar-making project. Jennifer Mattson
