All Year Round

All Year Round
Written by Susan B. Katz
Illustrated by Eiko Ojala
Orchard Books, 2016. Picture Book.

All Year Round is a simple picture book with a simple concept that works really well. For each month of the year, a shape is introduced using clever rhymes and unique cut-paper style illustrations. Rich and vibrant colors fill each page as the reader learns to associate a specific shape with each month of the year. One of the final pages acts as a review by displaying a collection of all twelve shapes with a cropped illustration of the month associated with the shape. This book is an effective way to introduce or reinforce the twelve months of the year and twelve different shapes as well as the changing of the seasons.
