I can't wait to read this with students! Not only are the mixed media illustrations gorgeous and reminiscent of picture books from my childhood (1970s), the text is just right: not too flowery, not too sparse. It is divided into the four seasons (there is a table of contents) with each season containing at least 12 short, poetic narratives or instructions or how to build or make something (a den, a berry crumble), and most are on gorgeous double-page spreads that depict the common scenes of the season. The whole thing is chock-full on how and why we should watch and experience the natural world. This will make an awesome read aloud to practice colors, high frequency words, poetry, counting, etc. 109 pages of goodness. Kinder +
