Synopsis

Skip Through the Seasons by Stella Blackstone

This hide-and-seek book is full of things to look at and talk about as you journey through the changing year. In every scene, there are different items to find. Learn all about the seasons as well as different types of calendars through the ages in the fun and informative notes at the end. Informative endnotes include information about the origins of the names of the months and days of the week, the history of calendars, and the seasons. The detailed pictures offer another layer of learning as young readers seek-and-find items in each spread.

Reviews

'A joyful romp through the calendar - Each spread is packed with small details, inviting readers to pore over the book and discover new items with each reading' - School Library Journal 'Little ones will delight in learning about the changing seasons through this wonderful literary adventure!' -Nashville Parent'

About the Author

On good days, Stella Blackstone lives east of the sun and west of the moon. On less good days, she lives at the bottom of a well. She finds ideas in all of these places and turns them into songs, poems and rhymes. She has read and written poetry for as long as she can remember, and her favourite books include Louis Untermeyer’s A Child’s Treasury of Poetry, which was a constant companion throughout her childhood, Paolo Coelho’s The Alchemist, everything by T.S. Eliot, and William Buck’s translation of The Ramayana. She lives in southwest England, and enjoys walking and working in her garden as well as doing nothing whenever she has the chance.
