Beloved author Anne Rockwell takes young readers through the year, as each season brings new surprises and discoveries.
In the spring, leaves sprout, showers come, and it's time for planting. Bees buzz and roses bloom as summer arrives. The fall turns pumpkins orange and leaves red and gold, and the wind grows cold. In wintertime, snow twirls down, and the flames in the fireplace leap and glow. Next year, it will all happen again, but it will be a little different, too. Everything is always growing and changing on a farm. Megan Halsey's charming collage illustrations are the perfect complement to this delightful introduction to the wonders of the seasons.

I loved this book! I thought it was a great way to introduce the idea of our four different seasons to my daughter and what goes on in each season in a way that she could understand. Particularly since we have a garden and spend a lot of time outdoors, she really related to a lot of the different examples of the seasons that were in this book. I really recommend this book, and I imagine we'll check it out from the library again and again each time the seasons change.
