This lively book is a great practical introduction to weather and seasons, set in a woodland with a group of friendly animals. Topics include spotting seasonal changes, and using rain gauges and weather vanes. The wipe-clean pages provide plenty of drawing, numbering, labelling and matching activities, which children can practise again and again. Supports the UK National Curriculum. Includes a quiz, answers, a practice page and notes for grown-ups inside a gatefold page to ensure children get the most from these books. Part of the hugely successful Usborne Wipe-clean series, the Key Skills titles teach children the basics of a variety of Maths, English and Science topics, including times tables, fractions, grammar and punctuation. Comes with a special wipe-clean pen which is very satisfying to write with, and easy to wipe off the shiny pages.
