Poetic text by Susan B. Katz (ABC Baby Me!, My Mama Earth, ABC School’s for Me) is paired with debut illustrator Eiko Ojala’s intricate cut-paper artwork to bring the months and their shapes to life! Bold colors, adorable characters, and lyrical text fuse together perfectly in this truly creative look at the world around us.
Spanish edition is available through Scholastic Club Leo & Book Fairs.
Months and shapes are paired together in Susan B. Katz’s “All Year Round.” Her text is paired with debut illustrator Eiko Ojala’s charming cut-paper artwork. The simple text and colorful illustrations work in harmony. For example: January’s text, “Circle round, ready to roll. Add two sticks, a carrot and coal” is accompanied by an image of two children and a puppy building a snowman.
I currently live in a world of numbers, letters, colors and shapes. My almost-2-year-old is obsessed. We must say letters, count objects, assign colors and point out shapes. Every time we pass a road sign, I hear the word “shape” from the backseat of our car. Upon further questioning, said 2-year-old will either say the shape’s name or tell me “no” until I recite the correct one. I feel like this “All Year Round” was made for her.
“All Year Round” offers a strong reinforcement of shapes while discovering seasons, too. Each page has numerous items to point out and discuss. Bold colors and cute characters make each page turn a delight.
While the publisher’s suggested age range is 4-6, I’d definitely go younger with this one. It’s simple and fun and is the perfect way to pique interest if it’s not already there.
