"Take a walk through the four seasons with your old friend, Crinkleroot!"

Born in a tree and raised by bees, Crinkleroot is the perfect nature guide. Who else can hear a fox turn in the forest, or spot a mole hole on a mountain? In this fascinating book, you will learn how to identify different types of wildflowers in springtime, find a beaver dam in the summer, locate owls in fall, and spot rabbit tracks in winter. Hidden puzzles in the art and simple activities like building a birdhouse and creating an autumn leaf book promise hours of fun, even in your own backyard!
