KIRKUS REVIEW

The familiar verse catalog of the months (""June brings tulips, lilies, roses;/Fills the children's hands with posies"") written by the famous poet's daughter (1802-1852), now in a pleasant edition expanded by its illustrations. Falconer pictures a girl and boy in appropriately changing setting and activities, with decorative borders extending the scenes at the sides and showing the proper wildlife, etc., at top and bottom. As an added attraction, a single flap on each double-spread gives a touch of three-dimensionality--and lifts to disclose a family of mice who build a snowmouse, drive a car, or harvest ""corn"" (wheat) according to the season. These sturdy pages should withstand the multiple readings they are sure to receive.
