Little summer book

“Cause a little bit of summer is what the whole year is all about.” — John Mayer

A little post sharing one of Eleon’s current favorite books that he’s been poring over on his own again and again. It is this lovely SUMMER book from our beloved Seasons series by Gerda Muller.

The Seasons series and other Gerda Muller books were Alexandros’ first books and he loved all of them, and so did I. 🙂 Now they are Eleon’s favorite as well.

To introduce children to literature is to instal them in a very rich and glorious kingdom, to bring a continual holiday to their doors, to lay before them a feast exquisitely served. But they must learn to know literature by being familiar with it from the very first. A child’s intercourse must always be with good books, the best that we can find. — Charlotte M. Mason

These little board books are such great introduction to books for the little readers by being beautiful, being about the real world and offering so many examples of what the summer is all about. 🙂

So here are the pages of this lovely book. And here are a couple more posts on the books (here and here) by this incredible children’s author and illustrator — Gerda Muller.

Where to buy

While you can get these books from Amazon (sadly a rather unethical company), consider supporting one of these wonderful online children’s stores instead:

How does my garden grow

How does my garden grow by Gerda Muller, children's book

As the spring season is just around the corner I wanted to share this wonderful children’s book. This book was our favorite for many months when Ale was about 1 year old. We love gardening and so it was very relatable to him. And in its turn the book would make gardening activities and garden creatures even more interesting for him and offer him new knowledge about the garden’s goings.

As all Gerda Muller books it is exceptionally beautiful with very charming, realistic and detailed illustrations. And like all her books it is very informative for the little readers. One thing I especially love about Gerda Muller’s books is that due to the wealth of detail and information we can go back to them later again and again, each time discovering something new or re-discovering already known facts in deeper detail.
