A fantastically fun Spring picture book about the changing seasons from the creators of The Leaf Thief.

Hello sunshine! Hello lovely leaves. Nice to see you back. Squirrel is so excited. It’s spring and the most perfect flower has started to blossom – and Squirrel has decided the flower is HIS. After what happened to the leaves in autumn (THEY ALL DISAPPEARED), Squirrel’s not taking any chances. . . He MUST keep the flower safe, and he needs his best friend Bird to help him! But perhaps Squirrel wants to protect the flower a little too much. . . After all, even flowers want a little space sometimes. Join Squirrel and Bird as they discover and explore the wonderful nature of spring . . . and learn a few things along the way.

My name’s Cariad. I’m an actor and a children’s author. Now, what’s your favourite season? Summer, Autumn, Winter or Spring? Mine is Springtime and this book is all about Spring. That time of the year after the long Winter when the weather starts to warm up, the plants begin to grow and different creatures wake up from hibernation or arrive from warmer parts of the world. Trace all over this feely picture. On the left is squirrel who is facing over to the right and standing on his two back paws. Trace around his shape and over his warm orangey, red fur. Most of the squirrels in this country are grey squirrels but some of them are red, just like this one.
