  About The Book

A vast array of poems old and new joyously celebrates each special day of the year, telling of New Year's resolutions, Valentine's Day love, Easter parades, Fourth of July fireworks, and more. From the cold of winter to the new hope of spring, the brisk fall to the steamy summer, Caldecott Honor illustrator Marjorie Priceman's vibrate watercolor paintings ring in each month of the year, bringing each season to joyful life. Featuring verse from favorites like Walt Whitman, Jack Prelutsky, and Langston Hughes and poetic lyrics from the likes of Cole Porter and Oscar Hammerstein, plus heartfelt introductions by Julie Andrews describing favorite family holiday moments, this is the perfect collection for families to share together.

This special keepsake anthology is one that readers of all ages will return to and treasure throughout the year.

  Praise

Praise for The Very Fairy Princess:
"[Geraldine] lets kids know it's not necessary to be prim and proper to be a 'real' princess; princesses who just want to have fun will find plenty of that here." - Booklist
"The mother-daughter team successfully demonstrates an understanding of that magical stage of childhood in which determination, desire and dreams can transform reality." - Kirkus
"Geraldine radiates noblesse oblige, heedless energy, and a sense of destiny-she's Eloise crossed with Hillary Clinton." - PW

Praise for Julie Andrews' Collection of Poems, Songs, and Lullabies:
New York Times Bestseller
"This is a warmly sentimental collection, leavened with humor and poignancy, ...educators and librarians will also embrace it for its sincere advocacy of reading aloud." - SLJ
"Julie Andrews and her daughter's selection of material for children... is bound to become a favorite." - PW

Illustrator Praise:

For Hot Air:
"Priceman's wonderful, vivacious black ink and watercolor paintings... add motion and buoyancy to an already soaring tale of a historic hot-air balloon ride." - Kirkus

For How To Make a Cherry Pie and See the U.S.A.:
"Priceman's story is expertly matched to her gouache paintings; loose and sketchy, vivid and childlike, they offer myriad details for each locale." - SLJ
