A First Book of Nature

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Walker Books

Discover the world of nature and follow the changing of the seasons with this beautiful book from award-winning children's author Nicola Davies, exquisitely illustrated by artist and printmaker Mark Hearld.

Hearld's nostalgic illustrations are the perfect accompaniment to this lovely chronicle of a child's first experiences of nature, divided into Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter sections. Davies's simple but lyrical text sensitively evokes everything from hearing bees buzz on a summer's day to eating apples fresh from the tree to looking for bird tracks in the winter snow.

Part poetry book, part scrapbook of recipes and facts, A First Book of Nature is a delightful way to begin to learn about the natural world, and is full of ideas for fun outdoor activities that children will enjoy, from beachcombing to baking a berry crumble. With lots to see in the richly-coloured spreads, this is a very special book to explore together and to treasure.
