From Publishers Weekly:

In this most recent book illustrated by landscape painter Locker, Frank has selected verses about nature by such notables as Langston Hughes, William Wordsworth and Edna St. Vincent Millay, and labeled each one with a month of the year. Locker has rendered lush scenes loosely illustrating each poem's setting. Although the poems--and the selection--are uniformly fine, and Locker's paintings are, as usual, marvelously composed and brilliantly colored, this work looks and feels more like an adult art book than a children's poetry book. Most of the verses do not have the distinctive rhythms and clever rhymes that capture children's ears, and the paintings do not have any strong human subjects. The results seem a little cold for most young readers. All ages.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2 Up-- Favorite verses from well-known poets--William Wordsworth, Christina Rosetti, Langston Hughes, Rachel Field--and some from contemporary authors of children's literature--Tony Johnston, Charlotte Zolotow, N. M. Bodecker--are represented here. The 13 short poems are presented on stark white pages, each faced with a single full-page scene. Locker's lush oil landscapes show the changing face of the Hudson River Valley through the year, each offering a clear visual description of the facing poem. Designed as an artistic glimpse at the natural year, this lovely volume successfully blends art and imagery, providing a sensuous introduction to painting and poetry. --Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
