KIRKUS REVIEW

By season, starting with Spring, and by month, starting with March -- animal stories, poems, ditties, and odd information for the young, with lots and lots of colored pictures by Richard Scarry. Some of the material is original and some has been reprinted from the works of such winter and fair weather writers as Rose Fyleman, Robert Frost, Thornton Burgess, Rachel Field and so forth. All of the material from rhythmic data on new lambs and ""snowy, blowy, glowery"" March to raccoons at Christmas -- is peppy, lively, bouncy. There are time guides, garden guides, illustrated tables of weights and measures, and of course the signs of the zodiac.
