Julie Andrews' treasury for all seasons : poems and songs to celebrate the year selected by Julie Andrews & Emma Walton Hamilton ; paintings by Marjorie Priceman
A collection of poems that celebrates diversity, family, and the moments during a year that make each day special. The introduction sets the tone by explaining that the selections were chosen not only because of their enjoyability but also for their ability to offer readers a new perspective on the celebrations of people who might be different from themselves. The table of contents is divided into the 12 months, with an average of 10 poems for each one. They highlight, in different ways, the holidays, seasonal changes, and other occasions such as birthdays, the arrival of new babies, etc. Featured poets include some of the usual suspects, such as Keats, Hughes, Frost, Dickinson, and Prelutsky, as well as lyrical selections by musicians and entries by the selectors themselves. Priceman's bright, eye-catching, folksy watercolors complement the poems perfectly and seem to lift right off the pages. The holiday/month index in the back of the book makes it easy to find a poem appropriate for any season, holiday, or mood. A light, warm, and cheerful addition to any collection.Rita Meade, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
