Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Hillenbrand's (What a Treasure!)joyous mixed-media illustrations playfully beckon youngsters to skip through the 12 months of the year while reading this picture-book version of a poem first published in 1959 by the late Livingston. Employing kid-friendly metaphors, the brief text homes in on one central image for a given month. ("June is deep blue swimming,/ Picnics are July,/ August is my birthday,/ September whistles by"). Though the language is simple on the surface, Hillenbrand recognizes that it's rich with possibility as he depicts a chipper pigtailed girl enjoying each activity-and each month-to the fullest. Memorable scenes are aplenty: an April spread stars the protagonist in a yellow rain slicker observing her reflection in a sidewalk puddle and the dark silhouette of her family's Fourth of July nighttime picnic is set against an inky backdrop dotted with effervescent fireworks. Like the spunky heroine, kids may be similarly inspired to celebrate the wealth of diverse experiences that the changing seasons offer. Ages 3-6. (May)

Livingston's brief poem takes us through the months of the year, vividly evoking with just a few choice words the spirit of each month. "January shivers," but "February shines." "June is deep blue swimming." Hillenbrand's double-page, mixed media illustrations elaborate on that spirit with impressionistic images of active youngsters, sometimes with a hint of Ezra Jack Keats, but always offering real kids. On carefully designed pages, using inks, acrylics, gouache, and collage, he creates settings that support the seasons but allow each character to be engaged, to join in the costumed fun of October's Halloween on roller skates, or to be bundled up for sledding in December's snow. The joy inherent in the activities of the youngsters is contagious.
Kirkus Reviews
Livingston's brief, through-the-months poem gets a vibrant treatment in this appealing picture book. There's one short line for each double spread, providing the accomplished Hillenbrand with plenty of possibilities for the bright, mixed-media, full-bleed pictures full of references to the work of Ezra Jack Keats. A busy girl festoons the ex-Christmas tree with treats for the birds in January, proudly shows a Valentine paper chain in February and flies a rainbow-striped box kite in March. At "Picnics are July," she and her family sit silhouetted against a sky lit with fireworks. For "September whistles by," a school bus's headlights cut through the early morning fog, as the backpacking, lunchbox-clutching girl clings to a grown up's hand. December garners three wintry double spreads plus a glimpse of Santa on the final page. A short, sweet treat for storytimes, and a nice impetus for families to discuss their own activities through the year. (Picture book/poetry. 3-6)
