I received this book courtesy of Ms. Menge for the purpose fair and honest review.
Overview: It’s a new year and Queen Vernita has received an invitation to visit her friends from Baja Quail. Twelve friends in twelve months. This should be fun.
Story Telling: Ms. Menge has aimed for a rather young crowd with this series. The illustrations are amazing. The language used is comfortable blend of simple and challenging.
Likes: This is a great idea. Look at the little old lady. She’s not afraid to learn something new. We also have a good repetition going for the days of the week. The way Ms. Menge snuck information in. Blink, and you’ll learn something.
Dislikes: I really don’t have anything against this book. It was fun.
Favorite Scene: My favorite part was the months where Queen Vernita tried a few new dishes and tried to surf.
Conclusion: This is a terrific little book. One that most children will enjoy.
