User Review  - Janae - Goodreads

Each pages covers a different month, but some of the months are kind of odd connections for children. Example: "Fresh October brings the pheasant, Then to gather nuts is pleasant." The wording is a little clumsy. Read full review

Very good book for younger students. It is a great way for teachers to begin teaching months to their students. Not only are they learning months, but they are also hearing poetry. Read full review
