This book is awesome. I was doing seasons at school and you couldn't have a better book to show you what happens and the colour changing. I loved the clever cut out style of the book with the owl at the centre.

This is a beautiful book illustrating the changing seasons and the impact on the residents of a mature tree. Cut outs in the pages add to the depth of the vivid yet simple illustrations - with the tree's key resident, the owl visible throughout. The story is very well rhymed and thus appealing to a nascent reader.  One of my child's favourite books. She particularly likes it when the bear cubs are out playing and climbing the tree. I love the detail in the book - in particular the spider making progress on spinning its web over several pages. This is a book I would buy people as a gift. Highly recommend.

This is a great book which explores seasons, through following the life cycle of a tree through the different seasons. The book is very simple, but helps the children learn about seasons and recognise the signs of the different ones. The illustrations are fantastic and very detailed and colourful which held my daughters attention. My 2 year old loved the cut outs in the pages, where she could see different animals. This is a rhyming text, it reads easily

This story is about how the seasons change and how this effects the tree and the owl inside it. It's a really beautifully illustrated book and we really enjoyed it.

We love his book! Beautiful illustrations and a neat little cut out bit by daughter loved. She noticed all sorts of things hidden away in the pictures and now knows lots about the seasons. We bought a copy for our local forest school too, who think it's such a good intro to the seasons they are doing their planning round it for this term. I would certainly buy more by this author.

This is a great book, ideal for introducing the idea of seasons - we're reading it a lot at the moment as it's autumn and we are looking at the changing colours of the leaves. The book follows an owl who watches as the seasons go past - there is a cut out in the pages that lets you see through as the seasons change and it draws the attention. The pictures are beautifully illustrated with lots of opportunities for discussion and also counting. It's a book that will have appeal for years!

Read to children aged 3 & 7

My two sons loved this book - their initial reponse was that the pictures were 'really cute!'. The book follows two trees and their inhabitants through a year of changing seasons. There was plenty to engage their attention - each page has holes that make animals appear, disappear and re-emerg through out the tale. And as the tale progresses there are sweert narratives to spot and follow (such as two birds meeting, building a nest and hatching chicks). The book is beautifully presented. There is lots to discover on each reading. Highly recommended.

A great book to learn about seasons and how you can see the changes. The pictures are amazing and nothing missed out. The children lived the owl who appeared throughout and did ask where he had gone? Great book for children and really helped them discover the different seasons

A beautiful picture book by the fabulous Britta Tekentrup. We love the cut out at the centre of the book, which keeps a constant at the centre of the changing tree. The illustrations are all in that paperlike style that we adore.

This is a beautifully written and beautifully illustrated book.  I have to be honest and say I think I like it more than my 4yr old does, but oh well!  Maybe my younger child will love it as much as I do!

What a wonderful book.  It is a great way to explain the changes of seasons, such clear beautiful illustrations with the added interest of the page cut outs.  It really does explain the effects of the seasons on the inhabitants of the wood and my daughter found this really interesting.
The text rhymes beautifully.  t's just a lovely read and illustrations to keep your child very focussed spotting all the details.

This is a really nice book which explains all about the different seasons and what happens to the tree.  I really liked the cut out holes where I could see the woodland creatures.  There were lots of things to look at in the book and I found it easy to read.    I did think this book was a little young for me and it isn't one I would read again and again.  I did enjoy reading it to my little sister though.
