A noteworthy review of Twelve Magic Months from School Library Journal on February 1, 2015
Thirty days hath September…including Make-a-Hat Day, International Rabbit Day, and Video Game Day. Kids curious about our calendar will get a grounding in holidays both unusual and familiar, historical dates, and more in these brief looks at the 12 months of the year. The design is simple and clean, featuring attractive photographs and cheery cartoons. Librarians and teachers looking for quick additions to units on months or seasons will find these charming titles useful additions, and young browsers are in for a treat.
