This is one of a series of four books without text that lead young children through the seasons of the year.
Full of fun, active illustrations, this chunky board book shows the joys of shovelling snow, ice-skating, feeding the birds, and being cosy inside by the Christmas tree.
(ages 1–4 years)
“The illustrations are packed with detail and give you lots to talk about. The book was equally enjoyed by babies and older children and has more to offer than the average board book.”—Hilary with Isaac (age 5) and Finty (6 months), Education Otherwise, December 2005
