Editorial Reviews

Review

'This set of four picture books are a lovely way to inspire creativity and imagination in your little one. Each book contains its own season packed full of detailed drawings ... The most wonderful thing about these books is that the story is always different, there are always new things to discover and new stories to tell. If you are looking for some creative ways to introduce the Seasons to your kids or even just hoping to get some picture books, this set is a definite must.' -- Baby Let's Shop.com

Bought all four seasons books. They are beautiful! Love the illustrations. My 19m old son couldn't put them down.

The board used is not as heavy as most board books, and all four books are slightly warped, however this is not a big issue for me. Just curious as to whether others have had the same experience.

I love the book, and so does my 18-month-old daughter. I just wish the construction were more like a regular board book, and not like it's made out of art-project cardboard, and then I'd order the rest of the series. Very odd, and not very sturdy, although we've had it for six months now, and it's held up. It just looks/feels cheap.

I am trying to share the seasons and holidays with my baby; she is almost 5 months old.

We bought the Winter board book, and after it arrived I decided to order the Spring one for her to open as one of her Christmas presents.

This Spring board book is nice because it doesn't have any words. There are just a whole bunch of little pictures that are very detailed. So, for example, you can talk about planting seeds and feeding chicks, or if you really wanted to talk about details you could talk about how when you're painting you blot the brush on a paper to clean it out so that you can paint another color. The detail gives you so much to talk about.

I wasn't really sure how I would feel about a board book without words before I ordered the Winter one.

I've decided I like it a lot.

An added bonus is, without words and with so much detail, it will be easy for us to "read" this book in other languages. For example, we have a lady that comes to play with my daughter and talk to her in Chinese, and she will be able to "read" this book with my daughter, and it can inspire her to talk about different spring topics without feeling like she needs to understand some English text. Or, my daughter and I can "read" this in Spanish and my incomplete Spanish vocabulary will be all right, because I can just point out the things that I do know.

After we ordered the Winter one, I didn't really care for this artist's style; I thought the people were kind of ugly. However, I am happy to report that I like the Spring paintings much better.

If you're considering this book, I recommend it. The pictures of the Winter one are interesting to my daughter (shh, don't tell her she'll be receiving this spring one in a month!), so I think we'll be "reading" these season books for several years.

I can't say enough about these books! Simple, beautiful depiction of each season - my 2 year old son notices something new each time in the enchanting illustrations. (I especially like the page with the child bedridden with the flu, homeopathic remedies on her nightstand. That's what early spring looks like at our house!) We're reminded what a gift it is enjoy life's simple pleasures and nature's playground (and all without words). I own all 4 books now, each bought at the beginning of it's corresponding season. Even my 7 year old looked forward to each one. Of course, perfect for Waldorf families, but I think they would be enjoyed by any family with young children - such a lovely gift.

I looked long and hard for some books for my toddler that would have pictures realistic and interesting enough to hold his attention and let him learn about his world, yet wouldn't drive me nuts with boring, overly cutesy pictures or leave me trying to read text that my son doesn't care about. I finally found and ordered this series and they are exactly what I wanted. My 18 month old doesn't get tired of them, and neither do I, hooray!

This book (along with the other seasons by Gerda Muller) is full of beautiful pictures with lots of details. There are no words, and it is up to you, or your child to "read" the story. Thus it's a new story every time we read it together. It's also very nice to hear my daughter (now 20 months) pointing out things and "reading" the story to me. As an educator, I know this stimulates creativity and her imagination without the limitation of words and someone else's story.

This is a beautiful book, filled with wonderful illustrations that encourage conversation with little ones. The construction of the book is poor though. We've only own this copy for 3 weeks, and it is destroyed already. My youngest one left it on the floor after looking through it and another stepped on it. Because the cardboard used for these books is flimsy, the book page tore. However, I do like this book so much that I'm reordering this one and ordering the rest of the series.

This series is so great. My kids love all of them. I am always surprised at how long they spend looking at them on their own. My boys are 2 and 4 and always have lots to say and ask about these great depictions of the seasons.
