Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The concept of time and its passage may be a difficult concept for some children. Almost forty years ago, the noted children's author and editor Zolotow and illustrator Williams (of Little House fame) collaborated on a book that tells the story of the passing days and months. A little girl is helped to understand the passage of time by her mother when they look forward to one special day after another, the most special being the little girl's birthday. Vintage illustrations still have charm. 1995 (orig.

    Charlotte Zolotow's "Over and Over"

    This was one of my children's favorite books, and I continue to give it as a baby or birthday gift. Charming illustrations by Garth Williams and a story that wonderfully explains that landmark events (Christmas, birthday, summer trips to the beach) keep happening "over and over". A real treat.

    Teaching about Yearly Calendar

    This is such a sweet book which helps teach small children about the order of holidays in our yearly calendar. My own kids love it. And as always, Garth Williams' illustrations are beautiful.

    This book will be read 'over and over'

    I own a gift shop and I carry a select assortment of children's books as part of my inventory. My children loved to have this book read to them 'over and over' and now I am reading it to my first grandchild. The pictures in the book are stunning. I enjoyed looking at them as much as the children.

    It truly strikes a chord

    This is a wonderful book because it describes the passage of time through the mind of a child. A little girl half-remembers special days, and goes through the seasons and holidays. It's a gorgeous book with great content and I've used it in my classes for over 5 years!
