All the World follows a circle of family and friends through the course of a day from morning until night, this book affirms the importance of all things great and small in our world, from the tiniest shell on the beach, to the warmth of family connections, to the widest sunset sky.
Pip the Gnome plays happily with his woodland friends, the mouse, robin, wren and spider. Follow them through spring, summer, into fall and then winter. The colorful illustrations and simple words introduce very young children to the seasons, with bright green leaves in spring, warm sunshine in summer, blustery wind in fall and snowfall in winter. Perfect for bedtime, the story ends as we look up at the stars and say good night to Pip.
Tap the Magic Tree begins with a bare brown tree. But tap that tree, turn the page, and one bright green leaf has sprouted! Tap again—one, two, three, four—and four more leaves have grown on the next page. Pat, clap, wiggle, jiggle, and see blossoms bloom, apples grow, and the leaves swirl away with the autumn breeze.
You are Light is a beautiful interactive book with translucent circles which illuminate in the light. Open this beautiful book to find a graphic yellow sun surrounded by a halo of bright die-cut circles. Now hold the page up to the light and enjoy the transformation as the colors in those circles glow. In an elegant, sparely narrated ode to the phenomenon of light, Aaron Becker follows as light reflects off the earth to warm our faces, draws up the sea to make the rain, feeds all the things that grow, and helps to create all the brilliant wonders of the world, including ourselves.
The Root Children is a staple in every Waldorf classroom. This is a simplified board book version. All through winter the root children sleep underground. When spring comes Mother Nature wakes them up, and they get ready to go outside into the sunshine with the beetles, bees and ladybirds. They play in the forest with the butterflies. In summer they dance in the meadow and by the stream. When Fall comes and the cold wind starts to blow, Mother Earth calls them back underground to go to sleep for the winter.
The Gerda Miller Seasons Collection is a series of board books which beautifully illustrate the seasons. These books can also be found separately, but the Gift Collection is a great value if you want all 4 books. As spring arrives children play with lambs, sow seeds and paint Easter eggs. In summer they fish for tadpoles, play at the beach and eat ice-cream. By autumn the leaves have fallen and it’s time to collect horse chestnuts, fly kites and make jam. In winter the snow has come and they have fun ice-skating, feeding the birds, and being cosy inside with the Christmas tree.
