From School Library Journal
PreS-K-A beautiful, fun, and minimalist journey through the seasons. Each month is accompanied by soft illustrations of children enjoying the treasures it brings, e.g., February is "time for snuggling," June is "time for bugs," and July is "time for fireworks." The format is varied, with panels, spreads, and full-page pictures, and the art is delightful. Youngsters are sure to take pleasure in following the characters' activities throughout the year. Great for a lap read, or for a lesson on the months or seasons.-Jasmine L. Precopio, Fox Chapel Area School District, Pittsburgh, PAα(c) Copyright 2011.

In this pleasing concept book, husband-and-wife author-illustrator team Seven and Christy introduce two children enjoying typical activities throughout each month of the year. January finds a girl sledding with her dog; a boy cuddles with his valentine-bearing cat in February. The two characters alternate activities (chasing a hat in the wind, jumping in puddles, enjoying flowers, hunting bugs, and watching fireworks) until August, when they meet at the beach. Activities are shared for the rest of the year: picking apples in September, trick-or-treating in October, feasting in November, and sharing cocoa and cookies in December. Seven’s succinct text only hints at story (“August is time for the beach”), while Christy’s sunny, paneled illustrations flesh out the details: a boy chases a ball, he meets a sand-castle-building girl, and they play together. A good choice for seasonal story hours; pair with Eve Bunting’s Sing a Song of Piglets: A Calendar in Verse (2002) or perennial favorite Chicken Soup with Rice (1962), by Maurice Sendak. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Kay Weisman
