This gorgeously illustrated volume of poetry -- sprinkled with facts and fun things to do -- sows an early love for nature in all its beauty and wonder.

The buzz of bees in summertime. The tracks of a bird in the winter snow. This beautiful book captures all the sights and sounds of a child's interactions with nature, from planting acorns or biting into crisp apples to studying tide pools or lying back and watching the birds overhead. No matter what's outside their windows -- city streets or country meadows -- kids will be inspired to explore the world around them. Written by award-winning author Nicola Davies and illustrated by Mark Hearld, a breathtaking new talent in children's books, Outside Your Window is a stunning reminder that the natural world is on our doorstep waiting to be discovered.

A wonderful book to connect children to Nature through lyrical poetry that is both educational, entertaining and beautiful. Turning each page illuminates another natural phenomena, aspect of nature, or a natural process in a nice mix of general and specific subjects. There are fun crafts, projects, activities and even recipes included! This book is a great book to check out any time of the year and would also make a great gift to ensure that the child who receives it is informed and connected to the living world around them which creates an essential foundation for lifelong discovery and learning.

A fantastic book that merges science, art, and poetry--a delight. Loved the simple poems that encourage children to explore, experience and think about nature's sounds, sights, and smells. The seasonal table of contents was a nice touch. I checked this out from the library, but plan to give it as a gift to many children in my life from now forward. Loved it.
