really liked it

I like this poem book because it is very relevant to children. It is easy for the kids to go through each month and relate what Updike rhymes about to their own lives. He talks about the seasons and weather changing, the activities of the people in those months, holidays, etc. He is very creative and precise in his poems. The reader knows exactly what he is refering to in every poem. The illustrations definitely deserve the Caldecott Honor Medal is recieved. They showed what it looks like outside during each month, what the people usually wear around that time, and what people usually are doing at the time. The paintings go great with telling the story.
