Pleasant look at what each month is like through the eyes of a child in rhyming verse. It is easy to appreciate the art of Trina Schart Hyman (Illustrator), whose illustrations are colorful, whimsical and full of delightful detail. My favorite picture is that for August, a day at the beach, in which a young mother looks in horror as her little one goes au natural on the beach.
