Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Andrews and Hamilton follow Julie Andrews' Collection of Poems, Songs, and Lullabies (2009) with a diverse compilation of poems and songs (including some of Andrews and Hamilton's own) from more than 75 writers, organized by month. Summer sees uplifting poems about discovery and outdoor activity, with works by Billy Collins, Joy Harjo, and E.B. White; fall poems include nature, back-to-school, and Thanksgiving themes, with pieces by Emily Dickinson, Sandra Cisneros, and others. Caldecott Honor artist Priceman plays into the seasonality of the collection with sweeping, brightly colored gouache paintings; her pirouetting ice skaters, puddle-stomping kids, and laid-back fishermen shout celebration, no matter the time of year. All ages. (Oct.)

From Booklist

In this companion to Julie Andrews’ Collection of Poems, Songs, and Lullabies (2009), the prolific mother-daughter team anthologizes verses and lyrics celebrating events throughout the year. Arranged seasonally, the poems relate to weather, secular and religious holidays, and rites of passage. Songs (for example, “Sunrise, Sunset”) appear without music, although Andrews encourages readers to track down the melodies. The authors also contribute their own poems, including “A Valentine” (Andrews) and “Ode to Us” (Hamilton). Coverage is diverse, ranging from “Martin Luther King Day” to “Chinese New Year” to “Passover” to “Ramadan Has Begun” to “Kwanzaa Days.” Many of the poets are familiar—Myra Cohn Livingston, Rachel Field, Jack Prelutsky, Barbara Juster Esbensen, Lillian Moore—although the selected verses may not be; their tone ranges from sentimental to humorous to poignant. Priceman’s colorful gouache illustrations (printed on heavy card stock) feature smiling children engaged in active pursuits. Perfect for family sharing, this also makes a valuable resource for teachers and librarians in need of verses for special days. Grades 2-5. --Kay Weisman

Julie Andrews, well-known as a highly regarded and respected entertainment figure in the world, and author of several children's books delivers this fascinating, fun-filled book for the entire family to enjoy. Children as well as adults will be inspired by a variety of heartfelt poems, which as a poet myself, I found extremely delightful. The joyous poems celebrate Special days of the year, including holidays. In addition, there are poems presented for the seasons, stunning paintings that add spice to the poetry, and songs. The verse from famous poets including Walt Whitman and Langston Huges are breathtaking, the poetic lyrics include heartwarming introductions as Julie Andrews portrays colorful favorite holiday moments, and this book in itself is a golden treasure and a keepsake for children and their families to share. Highly recommended as a special gift for that special person any time of the year. Very enjoyable, and refreshing!

Julie Andrews' Treasury for all Seasons is just that...a treasure! No matter what the occasion, Julie and Emma have compiled a delicious collection of diverse selections that are sure to touch the heart. I've also purchased the audio book, and cannot say enough how wonderful it is to hear these poems read aloud. Julie and Emma's expressive readings bring each poem and song lyric to jubilant life! I'm saving this, as well as the Julie Andrews' Collection of Poems, Songs and Lullabies, to read to my future grandchildren, and of course, enjoy them myself until then!

I ordered this book after seeing it showcased on the Today Show. The poems are so neat and divided by each month and season. The artwork is probably the best watercolor I have ever seen for a children's book. This is not only a great book for kids, but for adults too, who might be looking to connect with their artistic side. (I have no kids, but bought it just for me!) The overall feel is modern with sortof a retro vibe that brings my childhood back to relevance with my adult life. Julie Andrews and her daughter hit a home run with this book. I absolutely love it.

I'm always looking for another great book of poems and what better way to organize these than to set them to the rhythm of the seasons and who better to guide us through these than Julie Andrews? Lots of old favorites along with poems certain to one day become old favorites. And beautiful illustrations.

This is the second anthology by Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Hamilton. The two of them did a great job of choosing poems for this book, and they covered holidays unfamiliar to me. Each poem has a place and purpose, and it is a joy to sit down before going to bed and read a few that pertain to the nearest holiday. I especially enjoy the poems written by Julie and Emma. I love to write poetry, and most books of poetry appeal to me. This one is no exception.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves to read. It can be enjoyed by the entire family, and would be a great enjoyment to be read to the family by someone who loves to read, especially to children. It is easy to find something of interest to anyone who loves poetry as I do.

Julie Andrews' Treasury for All Seasons: Poems and Songs to Celebrate the Year
It is a wonderful book that we will give to two of our grandchildren for Christmas. We wish that the book had the music to go along with the songs. That would make it much more meaningful for the kids to be able to sing the songs.
