Mini Me Corner Review: All Year Round




Mini Me Corner is a post I created here on the blog, it's a place where I can showcase Children's books that I have read with my kids.  This week we have another great Scholastic book to share with you. 




Title: All Year Round 
Author: Susan B. Katz 
Illustrations: Eiko Ojala 
Format: Hardcover 
Pages: 32 pages
Publisher: Orchard Books  Scholastic Press
Published: January 5th 2016
ISBN:  0545741009

 A world of shapes, twelve months abound,
from four-cornered square, to circle, round.


Circle round, ready to roll. Add two sticks, a carrot and coal. (January)
A sporty diamond, player at bat. Bases loaded, tilt your hat. (June)
Triangle treats-pumpkin, peach. Want some pie? Excuse my reach! (November)

Poetic text by Susan B. Katz (ABC Baby Me!, My Mama Earth, ABC School's for Me) is paired with debut illustrator Eiko Ojala's intricate cut-paper artwork to bring the months and their shapes to life! Bold colors, adorable characters, and lyrical text fuse together perfectly in this truly creative look at the world around us.







All Year Round is an adorably written children's book filled with rhyming words and shapes.  Both of my kids enjoyed this book and the story made my son smile, which is saying something because most of the time he doesn't like the words only the images.  The colors and fonts are bright and I really loved the subtle teaching of the shapes and seasons. 

The rhyming words made it fun to read and at times made my kids laugh.  Which to me is a win, if a book can teach and make kids enjoy themselves as they read, then it's a perfect book.  The whole book had a very whimsical vibe to it.  I will say however, this book is more for the younger children, the reason I say this is mainly because of the easier words.

If your children are younger and love bright colored books with a great sing song vibe, then All Year Round is the perfect book for them.
