Outside Your Window: A First Book of Nature
by Davies, Nicola Author, Hearld, Mark Illustrator Candlewick Press (MA) February 2012 Hardcover
This gorgeously illustrated volume of poetry - sprinkled with facts and fun things to do - sows an early love for nature in all its beauty and wonder.
The buzz of bees in summertime. The tracks of a bird in the winter snow. This beautiful book captures all the sights and sounds of a child's interactions with nature, from planting acorns or biting into crisp apples to studying tide pools or lying back and watching the birds overhead. No matter what's outside their windows - city streets or country meadows - kids will be inspired to explore the world around them. Written by award-winning author Nicola Davies and illustrated by Mark Hearld, a breathtaking new talent in children's books, Outside Your Window is a stunning reminder that the natural world is on our doorstep waiting to be discovered.
