This year to accompany our seasonal nature basket we've started collecting books for a nature book basket.
Our spring nature book basket includes Felix and the Dandelion by Judith Steinbacher (with illustrations by Antonia Nork).
'Spring has arrived. The sun is shining brightly. The countryside is a patchwork of green and yellow meadows. Honeybees and bumblebees hum nearby. Beetles buzz through the air. Butterflies flutter from flower to flower. And there is something else whirring through the air... can you see the little red creature with black spots?
It is Felix, the ladybird.'
