A recent visit to a local bookshop resulted in us coming home with this lovely book, First Picture Nature.

A friend of mine is an Usborne bookseller, which is great as we are big fans,  and I had seen this book in a catalogue and dismissed it as being too young since it is aimed at age 2+.  I need to remember that ages for books are only advisory.

The book introduces many words, hence it's age two rating, but it does also have some lovely text as well.

Now that we are heading into spring I am starting to consider spring books for our seasonal table and this book has lots about spring and seasons in general.

It has been read several times since bringing home and I can see this books being used for a while, as my youngest is developing an interest in words and letters, to assist with reading.

Joining in with the The Children's Bookshelf a sharing of all things related to children's books.
