My Favorite Time of Year
From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.
Ages 5-8. It's autumn, the season for jumping in piles of leaves and drinking hot cocoa. When Halloween comes, jack-o'-lanterns appear on steps. For Kelly, it's her favorite time of year. But then comes December, bringing Christmas and gobs of snow, good for making snowmen and for sledding. Without hesitation Kelly says that's her favorite time of year. In the spring crocuses' noses poke out of the ground and leaves appear as lacy green mist on the trees. Kelly explains to her little brother that spring means it won't take so long to help him dress. That's one reason she likes it. Yet who can resist summer with its warm sunny days and dreamy nights? Beaches and barbecues add to the fun. There's no doubt about it, summer is Kelly's favorite time of year. Filled with joyous detail, this sweetly happy book is never saccharine, just filled with a true appreciation of the rhythm of the seasons. The watercolor artwork, bright without being overpowering, features cozy family scenes focused around a delightful Victorian-style house. A warm, imaginative picture book that adds affectionate dimension to a familiar topic. IC. Seasons-Fiction / Family life-Fiction [CIP] 87-45296
Publishers Weekly Review
My Favorite Time of Year
(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
A playful book evokes the seasons, beginning with fall, and, as nature changes, centers on family life. From watching geese, to the long wait for snow, to the snowman wearing the tie of Daddy's that Mommy hates, the text is full of fetching details and enlivened with one-liners. ``We look like a department store,'' Kelley says, bundling into layers for winter. And every season, someone in the family says, ``This is my favorite time of year.'' Nobody ever grumbles that it's too hot, too cold or that yard work is tedious; the glimpses of annual rites are what count here. A simple, clear idea, and Wallner's beautifully unified design and illustrations add an old-fashioned, never sentimental charm to a book for all seasons. Ages 4-8. (March) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
