Poetry Friday Roundup is hosted today by Madigan Reads.
My selection is "A Child's Calendar: poems" written by John Updike with illustrations by Trina Schart Hyman.
This collection of twelve poems, one for each month, is a lovely representation of Updike's work. The verse's are written in a child's voice, but bring an artful sophistication to the work that adults will appreciate and children will find understandable. The paintings by Hyman beautifully embody a New Hampshire family's activities.
