Nature's Day by Kay Maguire and Danielle Kroll (Wide Eyed Editions)

Nature's Day

Written by Kay Maguire

Illustrated by Danielle Kroll

Published by Wide Eyed Editions

What better way to introduce the very young to astonishingly brilliant non-fiction books than with a title as gorgeous as this. From the moment you see the cover of "Nature's Day" by Kay Maguire and Danielle Kroll, you can't wait to jump in head first - and your little ones will feel the same. Children have a natural curiosity about nature and the world around them and this book really encourages that, right from the word go.

Taking children through the four seasons, the many nuances in our weather, the wondrous flora and fauna we can discover in our world from the far-flung reaches of the rainforest right to our very own doorsteps and back gardens, Kay and Danielle are our tour guides on a lyrical journey soaking up everything nature has to offer.

Wide Eyed Editions are really developing a knack for brilliance when it comes to non fiction - with these big sturdy hard-backed books designed to be enjoyed sprawled out on the floor, just like the big weighty books I used to lose myself in as a kid. With tons and tons of gorgeously detailed illustrations to pull Charlotte in and grab her attention too, this is a real winner.

Charlotte's best bit: Visiting all the different places where nature can be found, and where all the different plants and animals live in harmony

Daddy's Favourite bit: A beautiful book packed full of amazing page spreads to really draw your little ones in, and develop their love of nature
