OVER AND OVER by Charlotte Zolotow
Kirkus Star

... children will wish to pore over the pleasant pictures in the simple story of the holiday round which highlight childhood's year. Our heroine is a wesred-headed moppet, who at three is too small to understand the sequence of the seasons. She thinks she remembers snow, but not what comes next. So each succeeding doublespread brings reminders, as Garth Williams illustrates the enchantment of Christmas, the bliss of Valentine's Day, Spring's first crocus as harbinger of Easter joy, summer holidays in a vacation idyll at the seashore, the mischief of Rallowe'en, Thanksgiving's blessings- and last but not least, that most personal of holidays, a birthday. The pictures glow with color and a certain traditional quality is a relief after the stark modernity so often met. A happy book for three and four year olds to call their own, with expanded captions that beginning readers will find satisfaction in reading to themselves.
