“Friendly Gregory and his pals...explore what’s special about each month. Each page offers I-Spy animals, objects, and month names to notice or find hidden in the illustrations....For example, a humpback whale and her baby are shown in August, that month being the best time to see them on the U.S. East Coast. Another nice recurring feature are children’s backpacks, which often have month-related books visible, such as one on MLK for January. The illustrations are well-detailed, colorful, and appealing....Whimsy and hidden objects add much to the appeal of this month-by-month journey.”
"An enchanting children's picture book. Gregory is a surprise main character...a delightful 'narrator' with his antics, his costumes, and his expressive eyes; a book that will be read over and over again!"
"More than your usual children's reading fare. Each page informs as it delights and I can easily see young readers spending hours happily chasing the seasons with this marvelous and friendly spider."
