Julie Andrews' Treasury for All Seasons: Poems and Songs to Celebrate the Year Hardcover – October 2, 2012
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

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.)
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

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.
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.
