All Around the Seasons

Barney Saltzberg

Spring, summer, fall, and winter come alive in rhyming text for young readers. Hatching chicks, playing hide and seek, rainbows, long picnic lunches – these are things found during the spring. Summer time is full of wonderful fun water days, lemonade, making s’mores, campfires, and lots of lazy days. As the days cool into the fall, the rhymes include turtlenecks, kites, leaves, jars with bugs, and of course, Halloween. Of course, winter, the coldest of them all, is depicted just as charmingly.

Young readers will enjoy the colorful illustrations and the not-so typical type. Mr. Saltzberg introduces the four seasons visually and with rhyming text. All Around the Seasons is an easy-read young readers is sure to enjoy. Adding this book to any library will be enjoyed by young readers.
