This wonderful story by Anne Heathers teaches the turning of seasons and changes that happen over the passing of time. The beautiful illustrations by Lillian Obligado show the four adorable puppies become, over the passage of one year, into full grown dogs, and with the help of a friendly squirrel they watch the year change before their eyes.
Originally published in 1960, the copyright has since expired and the book is very hard to find. We offer it as a read aloud for free because it is such a lovely addition to any Seasons Unit and so beautifully and comfortingly illustrates passing time for young children.
Glimmercat Education also offers a Reading Literacy activity for children that goes along with this video. Feel free to discover more about that activity here: http://glimmercat.blogspot.com/2015/09/the-four-puppies-read-aloud.html
