-Young children learn through imitation and movement. If that movement is filled with imaginative pictures, they are able to take it up in their whole being and express it outwardly in their play. Claudia Lenart's book Seasons of Joy uses the artistic medium of needle-felted wool to express the joy of children in movement at every season of the year.-
--Barbara Patterson, retired Waldorf Extra Lesson teacher in private practice, author of Beyond the Rainbow Bridge: Nurturing Our Children from Birth to Seven
-In Seasons of Joy, Claudia Lenart uses her beautiful rhyming prose to tell a classic tale of the changing of the seasons and the carefree pleasure of playing outside all year around. The details in every scene are meticulous and refined, down to the distinct wing pattern of a butterfly and the catchlight in a squirrel's eye. This book is exactly what it sets out to be - a joy to read and an inspiration for nature play for children everywhere.-
--Linda Akeson McGurk, journalist, blogger at Rain or Shine Mama, author of There's No Such Thing As Bad Weather
-What a treat to meander through the seasons with these wonderful words and beautiful wool paintings. Claudia is an extraordinary fiber artist who has the special talent of bringing magical scenes to life. A delight for adults and children alike.-
-- Donni Webber, www.TheMagicOnions.com, author of Magical Miniature Gardens and Homes

In the autumn, they can pile the fallen leaves high, jump on the mound, and then pile them up again. What are some things which you might think that they can do in the winter? Author and illustrator Claudia Marie Lenart is a fiber artist whose soft sculpture characters are created by repeatedly poking wool and other natural fibers, like alpaca, with a barbed needle. In Seasons of Joy, she shares the pure and simple delight of children playing outside. This is an important message. Everyone agrees that youngsters need to get away from sedentary pastimes and do more physical activity. What a fun way to encourage the kids to get out of the house and spend time playing outdoors and connecting to nature!
