The illustrations are beautiful without being sacchrine and bring a real sense of the season to the reader. As a parent, I applaud this because it gives me a starting point to talk about the upcoming season and the cycles of the year. I would highly recommend these books!
The pictures are very detailed and realistic. There's also a nice progression in each season depicted. For e.g, winter starts with the first snow and then on to children playing, family time indoors and outdoors, Christmas preparations, and the first crocus blooms under the snow signaling the end of winter.
This is a wonderful way to introduce seasons to a child.
"Summer," and "Fall") is a cozy share-time each time my two-year-old daughter
and I crack the cover. It's about ambiance, really, and imagination. We just
tell the story of the pictures, each time a little differently. My daughter's
never bored. I'm never bored! Every parent of a pre-school child would benefit
from this delicious little quintet of books.
We bought this board book and When Snowflakes Fall plus some holiday board books.
This Winter 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 making tracks in the snow and rolling balls for a snowman, or if you really wanted to talk about details you could talk about how when you roll snowballs sometimes you end up with bits of dirt and leaves on the outside of the big snowball. The detail gives you so much to talk about.
I wasn't really sure how I would feel about a board book without words.
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 winter 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.
Honestly, I can't say that I love this artist's style. I think the people's faces are kind of ugly. It's much better than I could have painted, though. So, we're happy.
If you're considering this book, I recommend it. The pictures are interesting to my daughter, so I think we'll be "reading" this for several years.
We love these beautifully illustrated books.
My son loves them, and I love to exercise my creative mind
by making up the stories, which change a little every time I read them.
No child should be without these books!

this book was a favorite from the beginning and was looked at for many years. There is so much going on in each page and a story to be made up as the child looks at the pictures. Read morePublished 6 months ago by areader
