Description

 

See below for English description.

Où va Zoé? Accompagne Zoé dans ses promenades au fil des saisons : une journée pluvieuse au printemps; un pique-nique un jour d'été ensoleillé; au parc dans les grands vents d'automne et dans la belle neige de l'hiver.

Faites à partir de pâte à modeler, les jolies illustrations en trois dimensions de Barbara Reid représentent des situations et des endroits familiers que les jeunes enfants reconnaîtront facilement.

 

Zoé is full of curiosity as she and her parents explore the neighbourhood throughout the seasons. Spring is the perfect time to splash in puddles. A picnic in the park is a great way to spend a summer afternoon. Chasing colourful leaves is so much fun on an autumn day. And winter has its own treats in store: catching snowflakes on your tongue and taking a sled ride.

No matter what the day brings, Zoé can always count on kitty and her stuffed monkey to welcome her home.

Brief, bouncy text accompanies Barbara Reid's bright Plasticine illustrations, which show all the familiar sights around the neighbourhood in wonderful, three-dimensional detail.

Original Title: Zoe's Year
