Product Details


“Updike’s poetry and Hyman’s glowing illustrations lovingly portray a year in the life of a child . . . in this gem.”—School Library Journal, starred review

“Each evocative illustration has its own story to tell, celebrating the small moments in children’s lives with clarity and sensitivity, with empathy and joy.  A beautifully illustrated edition of Updike’s poems for children.”—Booklist

“The language and illustrations are . . . vibrantly alive enough to keep young readers occupied through more than one reading.”—Publishers Weekly

“Updike’s poems are sometimes pretty, sometimes playful, and always evocative, while Trina Schart Hyman’s illustrations not only complement the verse, but add their own layers of meaning and wit. . . . A truly timeless book about time.”—Bruce Handy, author of Wild Things
