Over and Over by Charlotte Zolotow
The narrator in this story tells of a little girl who asks, "What comes next?" as she moves through the year, marked by the seasons and celebrations that highlight her days. At the end of the year, it is finally her birthday, and she wishes for "it all to happen again." And it does, of course, "over and over again."
It's such a comforting book to read, and parents can relate to children's lack of sense of how time works, and remember it for themselves as children. A lovely book. Get a copy if you can!
P.S. If you like this book, but want a chapter book you can read aloud or have older children enjoy, try Miracles on Maple Hill by Virginia Sorensen. It is a delightful read!
