The Lovereading4Kids comment

Sven Nordqvist’s picture book characters Farmer Pettson and Findus, his irrespressible talking cat, lead lives firmly rooted in the natural world and this charming activity book is full of things to do and make involving plants, flowers and all that we find around us at different times of the year, from growing a herb garden to making bark boats, or creamy vegetable soup. Pettson and Findus are the perfect companions in all this, working happily in the pictures side by side, and clearely explaining to young readers what they have to do. Short extracts from stories about the pair of them are scattered throughout the book adding to the appeal. This is a quirky and unusual craft book but one that will become a real favourite with curious children and their parents. ~ Andrea Reece

Beautifully illustrated by Sven Nordqvist, this book is for all children who are curious about the world around them. It shows you how to build, bake and make things using nature and everyday objects. Divided into monthly sections, Pettson, Findus and the muckles show you how to make bird feeders, plant bulbs, bake cakes and get involved in many other activities using everyday items.

This book is for mums, dads, grandparents, teachers, childminders, aunts, uncles and anyone who knows a young child who is curious about the world around them. Together with Findus and the Muckles, you can discover things to do -pottering, collecting, fixing, crafting, building, exploring and baking.
