Praise For Coco All Year Round

"Whimsical verses and crisp, vibrant photography present readers with a seasonal serving of Coco's antics. Each month of the calendar year is treated to jaunty rhymes extolling the virtues of that month--as perceived by a spunky young chicken…Unabashedly goofy, Tanen's rollicking tale of chicken-infused hilarity is good fun and a refreshing take on the seasonal holidays." --Kirkus Reviews

"Come on a yearlong journey with fluffy little Coco, a yellow chick who never fails to enchant and entertain in this delightful and eye-pleasing book. Little chicken Coco moves through each month accompanied by cute descriptive verse and hilarious photographed settings that create a playful book children will want to read again and again (my son made me read it three times in one sitting)… Filled with whimsy, humor and just plain good fun, Coco All Year Round not only teaches kids the months of the year but does so with laugh-out-loud text and images they will want to experience all year long."

"Colorful and whimsical."
