Green on Green
Discover the joys of nature, seasons, family-and the vibrant colors of them all-in this lyrical picture book from the author of the acclaimed Blue on Blue. A child is on a colorful journey through the seasons, filled with yellow flowers and blue coral in spring and summer and orange pumpkins and green pine forests in fall and winter. All the while, there is another colorful change on the horizon-the birth of a new sibling.
With gentle, rhyming text and vivid artwork, this book is a heartfelt celebration of family, nature, seasons, colors, and the wonder and magic of them all.
Our review: I can’t believe I am going to say this with the multitude of wonderful picture books available, but I think I have a favourite! This book is a journey through a full year with a family expecting a new baby. The short poetic verses perfectly capture the essence of the seasons, through the feelings, the weather, the colours and the changes to family life. The words are complemented perfectly with colourful illustrations by Felicita Sala, each page a picture window gently inviting you to view the day to day of one family. This is a book to keep out all year-round, I doubt I’ll ever rotate this one off the shelves.
Inquisitarium was founded on the belief that children learn through play and that toys and books have the power to spark wonder and cultivate a curious personality. We love sourcing the best toys that provide a sensory experience or teach the child something valuable. We are also completely addicted to children's books; our favourites are the beautifully illustrated ones with factual details seamlessly woven into a good bedtime story.
The name 'inquisitarium' aims to create a feeling of place for the sense of being inquisitive, curious and questioning about the universe. It also sounds like a terrarium, which fits wonderfully with our efforts to be green.
We are constantly learning about what it is to have an eco-friendly and sustainable business, and subsequently adapting our business processes and approach to product design and packaging to limit our environmental impact.
