The Lovereading4Kids comment
Winner of the IBW Children's Picture Book Award 2014 A beautiful book which brings nature to life in words and pictures. Nicola Davies interweaves fact and fiction as she brings each season into focus. She celebrates new growth and the rich harvests of autumn. Stunning, richly textured illustrations encourage young readers to look closely at the world around them.
A First Book of Nature by Nicola Davies
This is an exquisite book that evokes a child's first experience of nature. From beachcombing to stargazing, from watching squirrels, ducks and worms to making berry crumble or a winter bird feast, this is a remarkable book - part poetry, part scrapbook of recipes, facts and fragments - and a glorious reminder that the natural world is on our doorstep waiting to be discovered.
Mark Hearld's pictures beautifully reproduce the colours of the seasons on woodfree paper, and Nicola Davies' lyrical words capture the simple loveliness that is everywhere, if only we can look, encouraging children to go outdoors to explore and enjoy the natural world.
Winner of The English Association 2013 Prize (Non-Fiction 4-7)
“From beachcombing to stargazing, this is lyrical and lovely guide to nature for young children. Beautiful production too.” - The Bookseller
