A unique and charming board book that teaches babies and toddlers the rhythm of the seasons
This uniquely shaped board book celebrates the cycle of the year with a tree that blossoms in spring, bears fruit in summer, sheds its leaves in fall, and cradles snow in winter. Young readers follow the passage of seasons in a succession of spreads, each filled with simple text and intriguing lift-the-flaps that reveal the many creatures--from owls to bumblebees--who all find shelter in the tree's boughs.
Maryse Guittet studied graphic design at college in Paris. To create her books, she doodles and dreams, experimenting with a variety of colours and materials to explore the relationship between text and image. Her creations inspire young readers to dream, too.
