THROUGH THE SEASONS ~ SARAH LAIDLAW
All through winter the root children sleep underground. When spring comes Mother Nature wakes them up, and they get ready to go outside into the sunshine with the beetles, bees and ladybirds. They play in the forest with the butterflies. In summer they dance in the meadow and by the stream. When autumn comes and the cold wind starts to blow, Mother Earth calls them back underground to go to sleep for the winter.
This chunky board book is a celebration of nature, seasonal change and family togetherness through the year. Children and parents can imagine their own story or simply enjoy spotting characters and details in the beautiful pictures.
Sarah Laidlaw lived in the Yarra Valley, Australia with her husband and children. She drew much of her artistic inspiration from her own experiences of family life over the years -- holidays, festivals, walks in the spring sunshine and puddles in the rain.
