CHILDREN'S

BOOK REVIEW

AROUND THE YEAR by Tasha Tudor
Released: Oct. 31, 1957

"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."
The quaint and careful, delicately colored paintings which have charmed Tasha Tudor's followers in earlier books mark each month of the year. Read full book review >

CORGIVILLE FAIR by Tasha Tudor

BOOK REVIEW

MOTHER GOOSE by Tasha Tudor
Released: Oct. 19, 1944

"There are 77 rhymes in the collection, — more than half of them are the indispensables; the balance includes some that we think of as counting rhymes, rounds, familiar sayings and some that are rarely soon except in complete editions."
This is a lovely little Mother Goose, quite off the beaten track, not only in its selection but in its small format, scarcely larger than a squarish stocking book. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

FIRST GRACES by Tasha Tudor
Released: June 15, 1955

"One could wish that at least one Jewish grace had been included, but perhaps that is laboring the point when the number is limited- and the probable market primarily Protestant."
Companion volume to the favorite First Prayers, this, while equally enchanting in format, has, perhaps, less wide an appeal. Read full book review >
