I am trying to share the seasons and holidays with my baby; she is almost 5 months old.
We bought this board book and When Snowflakes Fall plus some holiday board books.
This Winter board book is nice because it doesn't have any words. There are just a whole bunch of little pictures that are very detailed. So, for example, you can talk about making tracks in the snow and rolling balls for a snowman, or if you really wanted to talk about details you could talk about how when you roll snowballs sometimes you end up with bits of dirt and leaves on the outside of the big snowball. The detail gives you so much to talk about.
I wasn't really sure how I would feel about a board book without words.
I've decided I like it a lot.
An added bonus is, without words and with so much detail, it will be easy for us to "read" this book in other languages. For example, we have a lady that comes to play with my daughter and talk to her in Chinese, and she will be able to "read" this book with my daughter, and it can inspire her to talk about different winter topics without feeling like she needs to understand some English text. Or, my daughter and I can "read" this in Spanish and my incomplete Spanish vocabulary will be all right, because I can just point out the things that I do know.
Honestly, I can't say that I love this artist's style. I think the people's faces are kind of ugly. It's much better than I could have painted, though. So, we're happy.
If you're considering this book, I recommend it. The pictures are interesting to my daughter, so I think we'll be "reading" this for several years.
