Description

 

See below for English description.

 

Profitez d'une belle journée d'été pour explorer un petit coin de nature rempli de charme! Les enfants pourront compter les poissons rouges qui nagent dans la mare, en plus de découvrir d'autres animaux. Les adultes apprécieront quant à eux la richesse des illustrations de Werner Zimmermann qui crée un univers unique de toute beauté… Un album que vous relirez sans cesse!

 

Inspiré par sa petite-fille, fascinée par la mare aux poissons rouges de son jardin, Zimmermann propose bien plus qu'un simple livre pour apprendre à compter; cet album révèle également les interactions quotidiennes entre la faune et la flore dans un tel écosystème.

 

 

In this unique vision of a pond, perspectives shift not by angle but by the hour, as the sun moves across the sky. Children can count the fish and spot the other pond denizens. Adults will appreciate the peacefulness and beauty of Werner's intricate paintings and note details such as the shifting light on the water as the book progresses. A beautiful masterpiece to pore over again and again.

 

This book was inspired by Werner's granddaughter, who was fascinated by his goldfish pond. But this is not a simple counting book – we also see all the flora and fauna of this tiny ecosystem change and interact over the course of a single day.

Original title: At The Pond
