Reviews

"A delightful tale that is likely to be a perennial first at storytime." -- "Kirkus Reviews"
**STARRED REVIEW**
"Klein's touch is light and Leng's movement-filled vignettes are harmonious as they capture the year in an album whose joys and disappointments become a cyclical, cumulative string of memories."-- "Publishers Weekly"
**STARRED REVIEW**
"The cyclical aspect makes for a pleasing bedtime story wind-down as the year closes, but this is also a creative way to talk about time and, maybe, to explain how long it is until a months-away yearned-for event." -- "Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"
**STARRED REVIEW**
"Through detailed visual elements, this quietly delightful picture book speaks to the potential treasure of small moments in childhood." -- "School Library Journal"
