What I Loved:
The narrator in this book was really cute. I loved how as she is describing the seasons, each one was her “favorite”. She would move on to a new season, and think, actually this is my favorite. It was adorable, and it really showed the reader there is something to love from each season.
How I Felt:
The writing was well done in this story. The story focuses on the little girl’s view from her home’s window. It was a fun way for my daughter and I to discuss what activities we do during those seasons.
This is a great book to read with a child. The story takes the child through the different seasons as seen through the young narrator’s eyes. It will spark conversation with a child about what they see out their window during the different seasons. This would be a great book for a classroom during a weather discussion. My husband is actually going to use this during his weather lessons during this homeschooling COVID-19 time.
The illustrations were gorgeous. They look like oil paintings! The brushstrokes and build-up of paint in spots were visible, it was beautiful. Each page had one of these great images to go with the words. My daughter and I loved looking at each one!
To Read or Not To Read: I would recommend From My Window I See . . . the Seasons to any child. This should be an assisted read for a young child and is perfect for pre-K through middle-elementary children.
