Calendar - by Myra Cohn Livingston

In the charming book, Calendar, each month of the year is presented in a lovely two-page spread. Extremely simple texts describe seasonal highlights, but it is Hillenbrand’s fantastically fun artwork that makes this book something really special. Icy January, April showers, picnics in July—it’s all here in bright, colorful detail. The beautifully designed collage illustrations invoke moods and memories harkening back to classic Ezra Jack Keats. If you’ve been searching for the perfect seasonal book simple enough for a preschooler to understand, look no further.

Gorgeous illustrations with a faint retro-meets-modern feel.
