A celebration of the love for a child through every season, with delightful artwork by the #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator of Hoda Kotb's I've Loved You Since Forever.

Poetic verse perfectly expresses the unconditional love shared between grown-ups and their precious little ones. Togetherness is always special, whether you are enjoying springtime showers, lazy summer days, or the cozy chill of autumn and winter. The touching message will resonate with parents, grandparents, and anyone who has a little one in their life. A must-have for new parents...and every family's storytime bookshelf!

(synopsis from Goodreads)

This is a cute little rhyming picture book that explores the seasons and landscapes of a year, highlighted by Suzie Mason's adorable animal illustrations.

I've encountered this illustrator's work before in I've Loved You Since Forever and You Are My Happy, both by Hoda Kotb. I Love You All Year Through may be by a different author, but it's very similar. Spare, rhyming text is set off beautifully by Mason's depictions of cute and cuddly critters sharing the seasons with their offspring.

If you liked Kotb's books, you'll probably want to give this one a try as well... especially if you were enamoured with the illustrations.

Quotable moment:

Premise: 4/5
