Friday Book Review: Circle of Seasons

This is an absolutely gorgeous book by Gerda Muller called, "Circle of Seasons". It is currently out of print, but was originally published in the Netherlands as four separate books (one per season). The board books are available at many waldorf bookstores, as well as amazon (see links).

The books are beautifully illustrated with just few words, allowing the imagination of the parent and children to tell many different stories from the gorgeous pictures. And there is always something new to discover. It is easy to get lost in these pages and I would have loved to have known about these when my girls were toddlers. Highly recommended books for little ones! A few of these pictures can give you the idea better than my words could :D

These books (or "Circle of Seasons", if you can find a used copy) would be wonderful to have on your permanent bookshelf for generations of appreciation. They help usher in the seasons and add a wonderful sense of rhythm to our children's lives!
