Anyhow this book is all poems :
the Thirty days has september poem, The months poem, january begins the year, february is next... etc. Then the hours poem- WE LOVE THIS ONE... One and two are walking, three and four are playing, five and six are eating... etc. Then there is The Days of the week poem, my now 4 yr old knows this one by heart... Tell me what you do all day? busy I am but listen pray. Monday is my milking day, Tuesday skimming off the cream, etc. Then the rest of the book is a poem about each month and with a black and white drawing with it on the same page and then on the opposit page a full BEAUTIFUl drawing to with it as well. Absolutely awesome!!!
