The kids have been enjoying our seasonal book basket since I updated last week with the summer books. I seemed to have a harder time finding summer books I loved as much as the fall, winter and spring books, but eventually I gathered a rather nice assortment that has been well appreciated by the kids.
Some of the favorites so far include:
Summer ~ Gerda Muller ~ because all of her seasonal set are so lovely and refreshing.
Peter in Blueberry Land ~ Elsa Beskow ~ I think we'd be hard pressed to find a Beskow book we didn't like, but this one with the blueberry-dressed boys and berry gifts for mother is so sweet.
Marshmallow Kisses ~ Linda Crotta Brennan ~ very sweet illustration, simple words
Snipp, Snapp, Snurr Learn to Swim ~ Maj Lindman ~ If you haven't read any of these Swedish stories, you are really missing something special. The illustrations will take you right back to the 40s & 50s.
Wave ~ Suzy Lee ~ gorgeous beach story told only through the chalk and charcoal illustrations
Blueberries for Sal ~ Robert McCloskey ~ perennial favorite of mamas and their little ones...and a pail of blueberries
Flower Fairies of the Summer ~ Cicely Mary Barker ~ beautiful poems about all the summer flowers
