All Year Round Cover Image
By Susan B. Katz, Eiko Ojala (Illustrator)


A world of shapes, twelve months abound,

from four-cornered square, to circle, round.

Circle round, ready to roll. Add two sticks, a carrot and coal. (January)

A sporty diamond, player at bat. Bases loaded, tilt your hat. (June)

Triangle treats-pumpkin, peach. Want some pie? Excuse my reach! (November)

Poetic text by Susan B. Katz (ABC Baby Me!, My Mama Earth, ABC School's for Me) is paired with debut illustrator Eiko Ojala's intricate cut-paper artwork to bring the months and their shapes to life! Bold colors, adorable characters, and lyrical text fuse together perfectly in this truly creative look at the world around us.
