Around the Year A Picture Book by Elsa Beskow


Around the Year A Picture Book by Elsa Beskow

Delightful verses and delicate, playful illustrations take young children through the special joys of each month of the year, from icy February to the green shoots of April, the red poppies of July, September's apples and the delights of December. This is a mini edition of Elsa Beskow's classic picture book.


'This is a new mini edition of Elsa Beskow's classic picture book. In wonderful rhyming verse, children can journey through the months ... There are also verses for the hours of the day and the days of the week, all of which are beautifully illustrated. Fun to read either together, or as a group.'

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
