Reviews

'This is a new mini edition of Elsa Beskow's classic picture book. In wonderful rhyming verse, children can journey through the months … There are also verses for the hours of the day and the days of the week, all of which are beautifully illustrated. Fun to read either together, or as a group.'
-- Creative Steps magazine, Nov/Dec 2008
