This book could be used to introduce students to rhyming words as well as seasons. The pictures are excellent. This story goes through each season and the transitions between them.

The premise is cute. There is a page for each month of the year with great illustrations. The rhyming seemed forced. When the bottom of a hill is called a toe to rhyme with snow it just doesn't work for me.

Beautifully illustrated book about the twelve months. Good for K-1 students learning about the months of the year. (Choice)

Recommends it for: Students in grades kindergarten to grade 2
This is an idealized look at a rural life that no longer exists. The story will appeal to adults who enjoy feeling nostalgic, but I'm not sure how well today's kids will relate to it.

This is a cute rhyming book. The pictures are excellent. This story shows goes through every season and the transitions between them all.
