Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

February is time for snuggling . . . July is time for fireworks . . .

This beautifully formatted picture book takes young readers through every month of the year as a little boy, girl, dog, and cat celebrate each month with unique, playful images that convey what makes it special. With gentle pastel illustrations in sequential panels, A Year with Friends teaches young readers about the seasons and the delightful ways they can be experienced with those you love.

Praise for A Year with Friends:

"This expressive childhood tribute to the joys of nature throughout the year warmly conveys the message that anytime is best when shared with a friend."

and#151;Kirkus Reviews

"A beautiful, fun, and minimalist journey through the seasons...The format is varied, with panels, spreads, and full-page pictures, and the art is delightful. Youngsters are sure to take pleasure in following the charactersand#8217; activities throughout the year."

and#151;School Library Journal

"In this pleasing concept book, husband-and-wife author-illustrator team Seven and Christy introduce two children enjoying typical activities throughout each month of the year."

and#151;Booklist

"This beautiful new picture book will be a great way to start the New Year in classrooms with young readers. Illustrated with soft shades and panels across double page spreads, the story line alternates between a young girl and a young boy having fun each month of the year."

and#151;Reading Today Online

"Rather than mentioning specific holidays by name, the book hints at festive occasions...keeping the emphasis on the generous, sociable, and downright fun things friends do together. Christy's illustrations provide humor, energy, and entertainment with year-round appeal."

and#151;Publishers Weekly
