Originally published in 1962, this book has been delighting readers for generations; coming back to it for this review made me feel happy inside. If you haven't read it in a while, or maybe ever if you are young, find a copy and read it with someone you love. It is a small book, fitting nicely into one's hand, or easily handled by a toddler. It's comfortable in the way that chicken soup is comfort food. And it celebrates each month of the year, illustrating that there is always a place for things that are familiar and loved, even in our wildest imaginings. Warning: you may find yourself craving chicken soup with rice when you have finished reading.
