With a space inside to write your own message, this charming poetry-pamphlet is the perfect gift for any time of year.

The wiggling tails of lambs in spring; the chirruping song of crickets in summer; first two or three, then ten ducks hurrying your way in winter, "as if pulled by a string"... Nicola Davies skillfully interweaves fact and fiction in nine keenly observant poems, which celebrate a child's first animal encounters. Originally appearing in the award-winning collection A First Book of Nature , Hearld's richly-textured, nostalgic illustrations are the perfect accompaniment to her words, and are reproduced here in full colour. With a space inside the jacket for you to write your own message, this pocket-sized poetry pamphlet is the perfect present for any time of year - and comes inside a packet including an envelope, ready for popping in the post!
