What time of year tells you sunshine is near?
When do flowers burst bold, from the dark empty cold?

From the gentle melody of birds singing in the garden to flowers filling the cherry blossom trees, this book showcases the excitement and beauty of the changing seasons.

Nature Trail by Benjamin Zephaniah and Nila Aye

At the bottom of my garden
There's a hedgehog and a frog, 
And a lot of creepy-crawlies 
Living underneath a log . . .

Nature Trail brilliantly highlights the wonders to be found at the bottom of the garden. The garden is a very lively place filled with insects, birds, cats and even foxes. The perfect book to encourage children to appreciate the natural world, with delightful illustrations by Nila Aye of woodlice with top hats, caterpillars knitting and crickets playing the saxophone.
