Love this book! The illustrations are beautiful and fun, they feel like a walk in the woods. The cute dog, only a presence in the illustrations (not the text) brings a real personality to the pictures and can be fun to find in some of them. The thing I love the most about this book is that it's set in and explores wilderness and the cycle of seasons. Lyon's words, as ever, delight the heart and mind.
Beautifully written and illustrated....my 5 year old grandkids loved the story and loved looking for signs of the dog. We had to stop and examine and talk about each page. The ending is a great and funny surprise! George Ella Lyons has combined nature, life and poetry all in one very special trek through the woods. What a great way to teach children the wisdom of the forest.
Lovely book! My 18 month old loves this and we get it at the library so often I’ve decided to buy a copy! She loves finding the dog hiding on each page and enjoys all the different animals. When she’s older this will be a great way to tak about seasons! I love when we find accurate and educational books for her!

Follow the year with this picture book that shows what happens in the woodlands during each season. It is not a typical "change of season" book but shows animals, plants and humans and how the forest keeps tabs on everything. I like the illustrations here a lot more than the actual text which is OK but not really special or memorable.
