One of a series of four seasonal picture books, lovingly illustrated by Gerda Muller, 'Summer' is a board book without text, allowing parents and children to narrate their own stories. This helps develop vocabulary and language skills by having toddlers describe what they see in the pictures.
The sturdy pages hold up to rough handling, and can be gently wiped clean. While they are perfect first books for a toddler, older children will also enjoy them as they grow an awareness of the rhythm of the year.
'Summer' portrays children engaged in a variety of northern hemisphere, summer time activities, such as:
- Catching tadpoles
- Playing and swimming at the beach
- Eating ice cream
- Enjoying summer picnics
These seasonal board books help children connect with the natural rhythms of the year.
