Silly Lilly: And The Four Seasons, A Toon Book

Silly Lilly: And The Four Seasons by Agnes Rosenstiehl
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.

...To know Lilly is to want to know what she has to say.

...Emergent readers will be drawn to Lilly's ebullient perspective and captivated by the uncluttered layout; the easy lesson on the seasons is a bonus.

I think comics are a wonderful way to draw kids into the joy of reading.
