  May is that wonderful month when the chilliness of spring is past and before the heat of summer is upon us. It is a time of year when children spend plenty of time outdoors playing games, working in the garden with their friends and family, and enjoying the beauties if nature.
  Indeed this month, named after the Roman goddess Maia, the goddess of spring and growth, is the month when flowers are bursting with blooms and when many animals are busy caring for their babies. It is an altogether joyous month with May Day celebrations and Mother’s Day.
  Many famous people were born on this month including President John F. Kennedy, Florence Nightingale, Rachel Carson, and Walt Whitman.
  With pretty illustrations and packed with all kinds of interesting facts about people, nature, history, and more, this is perfect title to read at the beginning of the month of May. At the back of the book the author has included “A May Story” about Pony Express riders which wild west fans are sure to enjoy.
