This fantastic introduction to nature should be on every child's shelf. Page after page of vibrant illustrations captures the snippets of stories, poems and facts of the simple and beautiful world around us. Divided into the four seasons, A First Book of Nature takes you through a year discovering the delights of each – from croaking frogs to summer bird song, transforming caterpillars to changing leaves, rainbows to the first frost – it evokes the childhood memories of discovery and the playground on our doorstep.
F loves to pour over the pages describing the delicate balance of nature, the importance of the humble earthworm and the blanket of stars above our heads. It's a book I will cherish as he grows.
