Book

Katie’s neighbor Mrs. Muddle declares more holidays than anyone else, and she celebrates them in style. In March, she makes peanut-butter-and-birdseed cookies for the birds to enjoy on First Robin Day. The next month, she and Katie dance in the rain during First Shower of April. As the year goes on, Mrs. Muddle creates a unique holiday for each month, and all of Katie’s friends get in on the fun. Then Katie comes up with a special holiday of her own, and Mrs. Muddle Day is the biggest celebration her neighborhood has ever seen!

The particular joys of each season are brought to life in lively, entertaining watercolor-and-ink illustrations by Thomas F. Yezerski.

Praise for Mrs. Muddle's Holidays

"A holiday winner . . .Yezerski's pen-and-ink watercolors are bright, warm and festive. This is perfect for every collection." —Starred, Kirkus Reviews
 
"Children of many ethnic and cultural backgrounds are depicted in this wonderful story of friendship and fellowship. It will make a great read-aloud any time of the year and will encourage children to create their own special occasions." —School Library Journal
 
"The text is perfectly paced for reading aloud, but the book will work best in small groups, which will allow close-up views of Yezerski's ink-and-watercolor drawings of energetic, gray-haired party-animal Mrs. Muddle and the warmth and whimsical details that make her celebrations so joyful."
—Booklist
