Around the Year is a joyful book to introduce children to the seasons and the months of the year. In this mini-edition classic, hard-cover book, (with a beautiful cloth spine binding), perfectly sized for little hands, Beskow writes delightful verses and creates delicate, playful illustrations that take young children through the special joys of each month of the year, from icy February to the green shoots of April to the red poppies of July and finally, September's apples and the delights of December.
