You can count, do forms, learn the colors, various jobs, etc. It’s a lovely book for the small ones as it allows them to tell the story with their own words

PS Lots of low ratings seem to be from uptight helicopter parents who think that exposing kids to the realities of the world is going to scar them for life. Yes, somewhere among dozens of things going on in the book there is a person smoking, and it took me a while to find out what "nudity" people were so offended by (it's a rather cartoonish little drawing in a picture gallery). All in all, there is absolutely nothing here even remotely as offensive as what you'd regularly see on a street these days.

I wasn't too sure about the slightly naive drawing style to start with, but it's grown on me, and perhaps feels more accessible to children as it's reminiscent of a children's drawing.
With hindsight I wish we'd splashed out on the individual volumes for each season (I think these are only available in German, although as others have said, this doesn't matter as there is so little text) - it would have been nice to have them in board book format for greater durability. We have the 'Night time' volume in German/board book format and that works brilliantly. But this single volume (containing the four seasons) is excellent nevertheless.
