“What child doesn’t love an adventure? This book allows the reader to share a journey through the months of the year with a variety of friendly critters as travel companions. Each beautifully illustrated page features a letter of the alphabet and depicts a simple yet imaginative activity, from ‘building a bridge of branches’ in January to setting ‘ships to sail in the stream’ in September. Readers will enjoy exploring the rich details on each page and discussing what adventures they might get into next. The dust jacket, or paper cover, also contains a poster of the critters on the move!” – The Pennsylvania Center for the Book

The Pennsylvania Center for the Book works with hundreds of children’s books each year while preparing booklists, activities, and curriculum materials. The center consider these 13 titles—a Baker’s Dozen—to be the very best picture books published in 2014. The books fulfill the goals of family literacy programs across the nation: to create lifelong readers and lovers of books and to start with the youngest audience—preschool children. Thank you to the Selection Committee for all their hard work!
