The pictures by Rojan will be the sales slant on this book, which has little to recommend it to the average child. A book of the months -- adapted from the French of Lacote -- and not particularly well done. The verse is not the sort of verse that appeals to most children. The signs of the seasons are not sufficiently evident to place the unnamed months. In some instances, one realizes that seasonal signs inevitably vary with locale and misses the direct allusions. Not a book children would choose for themselves -- and the pictures are exquisite in coloring but uneven in content appeal.
