A Child's Calendar
- 2000 Caldecott Medal Honor Book
Each of these twelve poems celebrate the familiar but wondrous qualities that make each month of the year unique. Vibrant paintings follow the members of a busy, contented family through the seasons, capturing their affection for one another along with the snowy quiet of winter, the newness of spring, the still heat of summer, and the crispness of autumn.
