Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
From snowy hills in "January [which] brings us coasting/ Taffy pulls and apple roasting" to December, which "brings glad Christmas cheer," Tasha Tudor's Around the Year alternates between antique watercolors and b&w drawings. The Caldecott Honor artist frames the comforting verse with old-fashioned landscapes and quaint country scenes, first published in 1957. (Oct.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Readers of this classic story will be taken back to an era of timeless innocence. A carefree moment in American history is celebrated as children commemorate the changing seasons with an optimistic aura of playfulness and contentment. The charming text was originally copyrighted in 1957. Tasha Tudor's warm watercolor illustrations assist in effectively capturing the essence of nineteen-century rural life. Adults and children alike will enjoy reflecting on this forgotten moment in history. 2001 (orig. 1957), Simon & Schuster, $17.00. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: Denise Daley
