We were recently sent a copy of this beautiful book to review by Wide Eyed Editions and we haven’t put it down since. Nature’s Day is a beautifully illustrated children’s non-fiction book that visits 8 different locations during every season and looks at the changes in the natural environment including plants, trees, birds and animals.
The book is a fantastic prompt for discussing the world around us with children and the illustrations capture their attention and offer lots of opportunities to discuss the changing seasons. The book is a large hardback so it’s perfect for snuggling up with and dipping into rather than reading from cover to cover as its probably too long for most children to sit through.
As it’s summer we delved straight in to explore the different locations during the summer season and Georgia really enjoyed pointing out the flowers and plants she already knew the names of and we both learnt lots of new ones.
There is so much to discover on each page and it’s the sort of book where you find something new each time you read it as well as a book that I know we will enjoy for many years together. There’s so much to read and look at on each page that I’ve even sat and read it to myself whilst Georgia was sleeping so I could enjoy it with out any interruptions!
As a childminder this is a fantastic resource to further extend all the things we learn about when we’re out and about exploring the land around my home. Talking about changing seasons is something that fascinates all children as they can physically get outside and touch, see and smell the changes around them. Nature’s Day is the perfect learning tool for any parent or carer.
I don’t think I’ve ever been more in love with a children’s book. The attention to detail, gorgeous illustrations and being able to compare the locations through the seasons and spot the changes make this an amazing book to be enjoyed by children of all ages with an adult.
This book is definitely going on our list to buy friends and family for birthdays and Christmas and is something we will treasure forever. I’m so in love with this book that I also checked out their other publications and already have lots more Wide Eyed Editions books on my wish list – see them all here.
Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this book to review free of charge in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own
