This book is special because the visuals are handcrafted...some, with real materials. So a flower has pressed petals, the twigs are from plants, scarves are made of wool, eyes from beads, clouds from cotton and feathers from....well, feathers ! There are rhymes to go with the pcitures. And fun things to do like finger painting and making flowers by pressing ladies' finger pieces on paper. So, read, write, draw, search for fruits in the word grid, or simply feast your eyes on the pretty pictures. Explore Nature in all Her forms !
