One which I hadn't come across until discovering it on Amazon is this one - Enid Blyton's Nature Lover's Book.
Every now and then when I want to forget the pressure's of every day life I get the book out to flick through. Having not done poetry since A'levels (remember those?) I had forgotten how enjoyable poetry can be.
This book contains many, all with a nature theme - this is November's.
It epitomises everything great about each season starting off with a short story for each month of the year, interesting things to do, such as fir cone birds -
The illustrations are so lovely.
My favourite is this one.
It is packed full of useful things such as identifying flowers, birds and trees.
I have to remind myself every now and then, that reading is good for the soul, and for me a book like this puts a perspective on life (simple pleasures) - thanks Enid!
So, for anyone interested in adding a book to their every growing list of books to buy, this is one of them.
