The Seasons by Debbie MacKinnon, Anthea Sieveking


The Seasons by Debbie MacKinnon, Anthea Sieveking

From the first green buds of spring to the snowdrops peeping through the winter snow, from splashy puddles to frozen ponds, this colourful photographic book covers areas of daily life important to very young children. Along with the fun approach come concepts such as wet and dry, hot and cold, growing and changing, colours and shapes. Action photographs of children, animals and objects complement the text.
