Discover the Seasons is a very special book about the wonders of the changing seasons that is meant to be shared by adults and children alike. Each of the four seasons is captured in sensitive poetry and colorful prose, accompanied by seven pages of breathtaking watercolor illustrations depicting nature at its finest and most intimate.
Diane Iverson explores the unique spirit of each season – celebration for spring, learning for summer, work for fall and rest for winter, and two pages of super hands-on activities follow each seasonal theme (using recycled materials). For example, Things to Do in the Spring includes Color Search, Bird Nests, Wildflower Gardens, Map Your Garden, Garden Labels, Receipt for Hummingbirds, and a Spring Flower Mobile.
