Zoe's Year is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.

Join Zoe and her parents in a celebration of the seasons and all that they have to offer!

In this charming board book bindup, Barbara Reid's four book cycle starring the curious and mischievous Zoe — Zoe's Rainy Day, Zoe's Sunny Day, Zoe's Windy Day and Zoe's Snow Day — are combined to take a toddler through all four seasons of the year!

Zoe loves exploring her neighbourhood, whether it's a windy day, a sunny day, a rainy day or a snowy day. Every season brings a new adventure! 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 and swinging into the wind are so much fun on an autumn day. And winter has its own treats in store: catching snowflakes on your tongue, taking a sled ride and watching the skaters on the ice.

Best of all, no matter what the day brings, Zoe 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.

This series was the recipient of the Mr Christie's Book Award, making this bind-up a must-have for every baby's bookshelf!

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family Favorite This book is a family favorite as are all books by Barbara Reid. But this one is so popular we now have 3 copies of it in the house, one for each child, ages 6, 4, and 1 and a half. Now the youngest's name is Zoey, which to some extent feeds the popularity but it is also the story. This board book is the compilation of four separate books: Zoe's Rainy Day Zoe's Sunny Day Zoe's Windy Day Zoe's Snowy Day My children love reading this book and following Zoe through the year. They like pointing out activities we have done, or picking ones for us to do next year during that season. With 48 pages of amazing illustrations the children can spend hours poring over the pictures. If you are not a fan of Reid's work or have yet to give them a try, this would be a great first book. If you are a fan, add this amazing book to your collection.
