Children's Literature - Gisela Jernigan
A little girl asks her Grandma what it was like when "Mummy was me?," and Grandma answers with this nostalgic picture book presenting seasonal activities and celebrations, arranged by month from January's New Year's doings to a Christmas Night celebration. Other festivities between these two include: making maple sugar in March, dancing around the maypole in May, and a Labor Day Doll's Fair in September. Each month is introduced by a brief, but appropriate quote from sources as varied as Shakespeare and Mother Goose and is made up of a few sentences, accompanying detailed, sentimental watercolors, framed by intricate borders of plants and animals of the author/illustrator's native New England. A note at the end of the book gives background information on Tudor and explains how she used traditions from her childhood and adult family life as the inspiration for the book. 1996 (orig.
