I want to like it. But, I cannot think of a kid I know would would really like this book. The best season is Fall because of the apple colors and idea that an apple that is "not so pretty" can be "very yummy." Just didn't work for me. ( )

Silly Lilly was a great book for an early reader because of the graphic novel style of the book it was engaging with many different illustrations throughout the book all organized the same way on each page. The vocabulary was suitable for an early reader. It also listed all the seasons in order and showed Lilly doing things that are typical activities for those seasons.

A short graphic novel that takes Silly Lilly through all four seasons.

SILLY LILLY AND THE FOUR SEASONS is a practice reader for children reading at the kindergarten level. It's a cute little book that follows Lilly through the seasons.

It begins with Spring and Lilly going to the park where she plays with her teddy bear. The text talks about how she likes to dance, jump, nap and play. And I should add that the 'story' is told in frames, like a comic book.

Summer has Lilly at the beach. She's standing in the water and noting the creatures around her, like fish and shell-critters. Fall is represented by apples. Lilly points out there different colors and eats one. And finally, Lilly is seen playing in the Winter snow. Teddy is back and the target of snowballs. It's actually pretty humorous as the bear's expression changes.

To complete the cycle, Lilly is back at Spring, swinging at the park. I think this helps children to grasp the cyclical rotation of the seasons.

SILLY LILLY AND THE FOUR SEASONS is a very nice practice reader for young children. The text is still large, but the format is different --like a comic-- which I think is a nice change of pace for kids. Besides practicing reading, children will get some reinforcement of what they know about the seasons. There's no heavy science, but Lilly is shown in season appropriate garb doing seasonally appropriate activities. So that is nice.

Perfect for beginning readers, as simple as it gets, but engaging illustrations. ( )

I generally wasn’t impressed by the simplistic, paper-doll art, and I found the static fixed camera viewpoint boring.

Lilly is a spunky little girl who delights in the unexpected pleasures of each season, peering inside shells in the summer and tasting different kinds of apples in the fall. In this charming and subtle book by one of France's premier children's book authors, Lilly learns more about the outdoors, and introduces the youngest readers to the colors, words, and shapes that arise in nature. Silly Lilly's intimate monologues deftly capture a child's sense of wonder, in five whimsical episodes that cycle through the calendar from spring back to spring again.
