This is a beautiful book. There is a poem on one page, and a full color picture to go with it on the opposite page. The book begins whith the "30 Days Hath September" poem, and a couple of shorter poems, and finally gets to what I consider the meat of the book- her poems for each month of the year. She has written one poem for each month. They are rather long for young children, but most will sit through a line or two and they will love looking at the pictures, and that will gradually increase their interest in listening to the poem. What a beautiful way to introduce the months of the year to a small child. And for those parents looking for seasonal/monthly poems to read with their children, these are wonderful. The book was originally published in 1927, and the drawings/paintings are of an older style than many of the newer books available. This particular reprinting is well done, with a cloth reinforced binding and a good quality medium weighted paper for the pages. The colors are lovely and the pictures are appealing to children (well, to mine at least).
