The Wheel of the Year
There are so many different things to love and celebrate throughout the year. There are seasons and holidays, weather and animals, things even more mundane like special foods. This poetry book aims to celebrate them all, season by season. Little ones will enjoy reading these poems, which start off with the freshness and newness of spring, celebrating holidays like St. Patrick’s Day and Mother’s Day. As we move into summer, there are entries for seagulls and sunsets and America’s Independence Day, while autumn gets into school-related things and the magic of Halloween. The final section is for winter, and it features poems about winter rainstorms and Christmas. The illustrations are fun, and children will enjoy having such a wide variety of simple poems to choose from. Adults may tire of the overly simplistic rhymes and questionable rhyme schemes, but they’re still fun to read aloud regardless. The Wheel of the Year is a cute collection for your youngster’s bookshelf.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
