Description

From January to July, St. Patrick's Day to Christmas, in sunshine or in rain, Sloane Tanen's adorable chick Coco is ready to take readers through an entire year full of fun.

There's a winter ice skating party, a s-s-s sneaky April Fool's Day prank, a summer road trip, even a Thanksgiving dinner that's fit for birds of all feathers. Imaginative details within the colorful photographs and quirky stanzas follow a course through the entire calendar year-making this a perfect introduction to the seasons, holidays, and months for young children.
