Each season is evocatively illustrated by Tim Hopgood - 2008 winner of Booktrust's Best Emerging Illustrator Award, developing the text and encouraging discussion. * Pink B level/Band 1B books offer simple, predictable text with familiar objects and actions * Text type: A story with predictable structure and patterned language. * Illustrations of each of the four main seasons on pages 14-15 show the weather you can expect during each one and what sort of games you can play in it. * Curriculum links: Knowledge and Understanding of the World
