Read full description of the books The Story of May:This book is fun from the very first words. The character May is a young girl who learns the things of Spring. Her Mother April teaches her but soon she becomes lost. She runs into her aunt June whom she finds out that she has a father, December. This sends her on her quest.
I loved how each month is represented with colorful words that suck you in and take you along with the journey. Each character, represented by months, is as wild and precious as the next. The reader learns a little bit about each month as May hops through the year on her pursuit to find her father.
The illustrations for each is done bold and colorful and is described well by the words that have been written.
Although this book is targeted for 4-8 year old's, I feel this book is meant to be for an older child who can read well. The paragraphs are complex and well written. I do not believe younger children that need to be read to would sit long enough. Although, I could see this book used in a shorter study of the months.
Excellent book and deserves 5 stars!

Read information about the authorMordicai Gerstein is the author and illustrator of The Man Who Walked Between the Towers, winner of the Caldecott Medal, and has had four books named New York Times Best Illustrated Books of the Year. Gerstein was born in Los Angeles in 1935. He remembers being inspired as a child by images of fine art, which his mother cut out of Life magazine, and by children’s books from the library: “I looked at Rembrandt and Superman, Matisse and Bugs Bunny, and began to make my own pictures.”
He attended Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, and then got a job in an animated cartoon studio that sent him to New York, where he designed characters and thought up ideas for TV commercials. When a writer named Elizabeth Levy asked him to illustrate a humorous mystery story about two girls and a dog, his book career began, and soon he moved on to writing as well as illustrating. “I’m still surprised to be an author,” he says. “I wonder what I’ll write next?” Gerstein lives in Westhampton, Massachusetts.
