The Lovereading4Kids comment

Inspired by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury’s classic Picturebook and the new TV version this is a lovely book to take outdoors whether you’re on a country walk or in the local park or just the back garden. It encourages children to look closely at the natural world around them and record their discoveries in a very attractive journal. There are suggestions for things to do, from planting sees to a bit of soil analysis and lots of opportunities for sketching too. A lovely looking little book that will make outdoor play into a proper adventure and even more fun and rewarding. ~ Andrea Reece
