Babar's Busy Year by Laurent de Brunhoff


Babar's Busy Year by Laurent de Brunhoff

Babar and his family gather apples and corn in the fall, go skiing in the winter, garden in the spring, and swim in the summer. They also play soccer, carve pumpkins, sled down snowy hills, pick flowers, and have picnics - for them, the whole year is a busy time! First published in 1989, this Babar classic is a fun introduction to the four seasons.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
