Discover the Seasonsby Diane Iverson
Author/illustrator Diane Iverson introduces the young child to the wonders of the changing seasons in Discover the Seasons. Rich illustrations and sensitive poetry vividly capture the unique spirit of each part of the year: celebration for spring, learning for summer, work for fall and rest for winter. Each theme is then explored through hands-on activities that adults and children can share. Tasty recipes using freshly gathered fruits and vegetables provide the final, irresistible highlight for each season.

The best part of this book is the extension activities that are included at the end of each season. These activities include adopting a park, playground, or stream in the summer, making Christmas wrap in the winter, and much more. Love to cook? Recipes are included for each season, too. While the book is written for children between the ages of 3-10, I believe that looking at the pictures and describing them would be more appropriate than the words themselves. On the other hand, the facts included on each page are interesting for older children to enjoy. In other words, there is something for everyone!
