My Thoughts:
What a wonderful book for any age, but to me this is more appropriate for a younger child, ages 4-10.  
This is a beautiful hardcover book (book board) with the gorgeous artwork set in the traditional Precious Memories character format.  The artwork is both whimsical and entertaining.  The talented author, Jean Fischer, wrote this book flare of rhyming phrases that will grab the attention of any little reader.  
Let me tell you a little about the book itself
-weighs about a pound
-measures  7.00 X 5.00 (inches)
-has 32 pages.
As you can see this is perfect for little hands.  
As you open the book the first page contains a poem for seasons which sets up how the entire book will proceed. Each page contains one or more poem and is also accompanied by an easy to read verse from the bible. 
For instance, here is a sample.  

"Hurray for Autumn!"
Get up and shout.
What's it about?
Stand up and cheer.
Autum is here.

The accompanying verse:

There is a right time for everything.
Everything on earth has its special season.
 ~Ecclesiastes 3:1
      As a parent you could use these as memory verses for your children.  Some of the topics covered are: autumn, going to school, harvest, apple picking, football, changing of colors of the leaves, harvest moon, pumpkins, hayrides, and Thanksgiving.  
This is a perfect book to teach children about being grateful for all the blessings God has given us.         
This is a book I would recommend for any small child.
