Linnea's Almanac

Christina Bjork, Author, Cristina Bjork, Author, Lena Anderson, Illustrator R & S Books $13 (60p) ISBN 978-91-29-59176-7
Linnea, from Linnea in Monet's Garden and Linnea's Windowsill Garden , is back, and she is inspired by the Old Farmer's Almanac to track the growing things in her city world. Month by month, the round-faced girl with stick-straight hair never lacks for activities, whether making flower garlands, identifying birds or creating a Christmas-present collage out of beach debris. She's an urban child who visits with her friends Mr. Bloom and Mr. Brush to get ideas. The information contained here is solid and written in an extremely articulate (and likable) young voice. Photographs are sprinkled throughout, as are Anderson's intricately drawn illustrations. This treasure of a book is a handy reference as well as a delight to read straight through. All ages. (Dec.)
