Description

From dawn to dusk, take your young one on a delightful journey through a spring day deep in the countryside, spotting elegant swans and tiny wrens in this classic counting book, newly reissued for its 15th anniversary.

The day begins with a solitary cockerel’s crow and the sunlight falling on two lovebirds in a cage and three china ducks on a wall. Swans, swallows, peacocks, geese and starlings – each lovingly portrayed in award-winning author-illustrator Alice Melvin’s signature style – are among the many familiar birds that populate the pages.

Intricately worked illustrations combine with a charming text, making this an ideal book to read aloud with children learning to count.
