A Year with Friends by John Seven

February is for snuggling. July is for fireflies. August is time for the beach. September is for picking apples. And a new year is time for fun with new friends! This soft and simple picture book takes young readers through every month of the year, celebrating each month with a unique, playful image that conveys what makes it special. With gentle, pastel illustrations designed in sequential panels, A Year With Friends teaches young readers about the seasons and the ways they can be experienced with friends.
