KIRKUS REVIEW

The quaint and careful, delicately colored paintings which have charmed Tasha Tudor's followers in earlier books mark each month of the year. Here, the pleasantly old-fashioned character of her work now appears in an almost Currier and Ives vein. "January brings us ... coasting, Taffy pulls and apple roasting." Two double spreads illustrate each month while simple rhymed lines describe it. For children to whom the calendar is still a confusing complexity, this will fill a need. Period and pastoral, this is a nostalgic view of country children of long ago... around the year.
