Subtitle Life in the Heat
In this follow-up to Winter Sleep and Busy Spring, Wild Summer celebrates nature during the warm summer months.
The beautifully-told story follows a young girl and her grandpa as they walk down a wild path towards the coast. They spot amazing plants and animals, and she is enchanted by the vibrancy of life around her.
“The plants and animals must wish it was summer forever, don’t they?”
This nature-filled book shows a touching relationship between grandfather and grandchild as he teaches her about the wonders of the natural world around her.
They pass through several habitats and the girl's grandfather teaches her how summer affects each of them and their wildlife: a meadow, a stream, sandy heathland, pine woods, fossil-rich cliffs and a rocky cove.
Filled with facts as well as beautiful and gentle illustrations, this book is a great way to teach children about nature and the seasons.
