Magical illustrations by Mordicai Gerstein with an interesting and beautiful story of the months of the year. The story begins with April waking up May, who is a little girl. May travels to meet the rest of the months of the year on her way to meet her father who is December. Then she travels again and meets January through March to get back to her mother April. An old favorite that is just a treasure to share, touching wonderfully upon nature, seasons, and families living apart.
