Discover what it would be like to travel through the four seasons in one day! Follow a little girl called Isabelle and her dog, Pickle on the adventure of a lifetime. Watch as the little apple tree Isabelle carries with her buds, blossoms and loses its leaves as the seasons change and hear music from Vivaldi's Four Seasons by pressing a button on each new spread. This charming and stylishly illustrated sound book also features a biography of Vivaldi at the back along with a guide to the music, and is the perfect introduction to classical music for young children.

Manufacturer's note: please pull the white tab out of the back of the book before use. Sound buttons require a firm push in exact location to work, which may be hard for young children. All sound clips are 10 seconds long.

This is the most delightful book I have bought in a very long time. The story follows a little girl called Isabelle, her dog pickle and a little apple tree. It takes you through the four seasons, with each page containing an exert from Vivaldi's four seasons. The apple tree, grows and then loses its leaves in Line with the four seasons. We've only had the book two days but I've read it to my children about 12 times, the autumn page is particularly beautiful. The illustrations in the book are so lovely.

Beautiful interactive story with excerpts from Vivaldi's Four Seasons. The story takes you through a day where a little girl, her dog and her apple tree experience all four seasons. On each spread you can press a button to hear a relevant part from Four Seasons. The illustrations are beautiful, with lots of detail, and really bring the seasons and the story to life. At the end there is some information about Vivaldi, plus you can listen to each excerpt again with a small explanation of what the music is supposed to represent. One thing to note for young children is that the paper feels a little thinner than other books so it's easy to tear when turning quickly. Sometimes smaller fingers might struggle to start the music.

This is a superb book that celebrates all four seasons.
Follow a young girl as she visits a different season at each turn of page with her apple tree in tow, followed by her dog. Not only that, each page also plays a clip of Antonio Vivaldi’s music, The Four Seasons. 
Jessica Courtney-Tickle's work is so detailed and pretty and the entire book seamlessly blends together with the accompanying music.
The text encompasses observations, smells, sounds and touch and is a reminder of all the things that one can spot during the varying seasons. The use of Vivaldi’s music is a brilliant way of introducing classical music to young ones and would be a great book to use in a learning setting. A read engaging many senses.
