A very young non-fiction picture book that looks at how a tree changes with the seasons, with charming illustrations by Charlotte Voake.Learn how a plum tree changes with the seasons in this charming non-fiction picture book, beautifully illustrated by Charlotte Voake. Chris Butterworth's gentle, lyrical text describes how the buds of the plum tree bloom in the spring and how its leaves grow green and lush in the summer. Time goes by, and soon we see those same leaves fall in the autumn - now the branches are bare for the cold winter-months. With exquisite watercolour illustrations by Charlotte Voake, this is a book to treasure.
