by

Julie Andrews' Treasury for All Seasons: Poems and Songs to Celebrate the Year Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A vast array of poems old and new joyously celebrates each special day of the year, telling of New Year's resolutions, Valentine's Day love, Easter parades, Fourth of July fireworks, and more. From the cold of winter to the new hope of spring, the brisk fall to the steamy summer, Caldecott Honor illustrator Marjorie Priceman's vibrant watercolor paintings ring in every month of the year, bringing each season to joyful life. Featuring verse from favorites like Walt Whitman, Jack Prelutsky, and Langston Hughes and poetic lyrics from the likes of Cole Porter and Oscar Hammerstein, plus heartfelt introductions by Julie Andrews describing favorite family holiday moments, this is the perfect collection for families to share together.

Review:

"Andrews and Hamilton follow Julie Andrews' Collection of Poems, Songs, and Lullabies (2009) with a diverse compilation of poems and songs (including some of Andrews and Hamilton's own) from more than 75 writers, organized by month. Summer sees uplifting poems about discovery and outdoor activity, with works by Billy Collins, Joy Harjo, and E.B. White; fall poems include nature, back-to-school, and Thanksgiving themes, with pieces by Emily Dickinson, Sandra Cisneros, and others. Caldecott Honor artist Priceman plays into the seasonality of the collection with sweeping, brightly colored gouache paintings; her pirouetting ice skaters, puddle-stomping kids, and laid-back fishermen shout celebration, no matter the time of year. All ages." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
