Review quote

'This set of four picture books are a lovely way to inspire creativity and imagination in your little one. Each book contains its own season packed full of detailed drawings The most wonderful thing about these books is that the story is always different, there are always new things to discover and new stories to tell. If you are looking for some creative ways to introduce the Seasons to your kids or even just hoping to get some picture books, this set is a definite must.'
-- Baby Let's

'This text free picture book shows children enjoying outdoor play during summer. Picking radishes from the vegetable garden, sailing boats on the river, a day at the beach and supper in the garden.
As always, Gerda Muller's sensitive observations of nature are accurate, and her depiction of children enjoying the outdoors are wonderful!'
