My Big Book of Outdoors by Tim Hopgood [Review & Giveaway - USA/CANADA]

My thoughts: Upon opening this big book of delightful imagery, I see the phrase.... "For everyone who stayed indoors in 2020."

How appropriate to place a beautiful celebration of the seasons just as the Covid pandemic seems to be coming to an end. That's not to say that our enemy "The Covid" is absolutely gone, it simply means we are moving on into a new season of dealing with this virus.

Now about this children's book. 

Firstly, it is divided into the four seasons. We're currently winding down on Spring and the book opens with the season of Spring. 

Secondly, I am amazed at the amount of information and wonderful illustrations that the author/illustrator provides in this book. Seeds, bulbs, ants, birds, eggs, rain. How it all is there to interact and perform. How each season brings new change to our world.

The text is easy going and sure to make a delicate impact on the senses as well as the learned skills and information gleaned. There are a few fun activities in which the child may engage as well as providing an opportunity to learn. 

I highly recommend this book for families with children up to about age 9 or 10. Sure to please!

About the book: Introduce little ones to the great outdoors with this beautifully illustrated treasury exploring the wonders of nature in four glorious seasons.

From vibrant springtime flowers to sweet fruits on summer trees, from the falling of autumn leaves to snowdrops in winter, this ode to the four seasons introduces young readers to the world of nature outside their door. During the chilly months, they can discover why birds fly south in winter, search for animal footprints in the snow, or learn to make the perfect paper snowflake. As the sun grows stronger, they're invited to weave a daisy chain, find a feather, or try their hand at growing a sunflower. Full of activities, poetry, fun facts to explore, and amazing things to see and do outside, this brightly illustrated book makes a delightful gift for all seasons.
