A Child's Calendar by John Updike, illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman

Here is another great introduction to poetry in a gentle, simple style. Pullitzer-prize winning Updike has written a poem for each month of the year. 
“At last, small witches
Goblins, hags,
And pirates armed/
With paper bags,
Their costumes hinged
On safety pins,
Go haunt a night
Of pumpkin grins” (from “October”).
