Product Description

Review

'This is a new mini edition of Elsa Beskow's classic picture book. In wonderful rhyming verse, children can journey through the months ... There are also verses for the hours of the day and the days of the week, all of which are beautifully illustrated. Fun to read either together, or as a group.' -- Creative Steps magazine, Nov/Dec 2008

About the Author

Elsa Beskow (1874-1953), born Elsa Maartman in Stockholm, was a pioneering author and illustrator of children's books in Sweden perhaps the best known of all Swedish children's book artists. Her books were inspired by her own childhood experiences, as well as those of her six children. Central themes were the relationships between children and adults and children's independent initiative. Her books are continually reprinted, and many have become classics. She also illustrated ABC books and songbooks for Swedish schools.

Format: Hardcover
This is a beautiful book. There is a poem on one page, and a full color picture to go with it on the opposite page. The book begins whith the "30 Days Hath September" poem, and a couple of shorter poems, and finally gets to what I consider the meat of the book- her poems for each month of the year. She has written one poem for each month. They are rather long for young children, but most will sit through a line or two and they will love looking at the pictures, and that will gradually increase their interest in listening to the poem. What a beautiful way to introduce the months of the year to a small child. And for those parents looking for seasonal/monthly poems to read with their children, these are wonderful. The book was originally published in 1927, and the drawings/paintings are of an older style than many of the newer books available. This particular reprinting is well done, with a cloth reinforced binding and a good quality medium weighted paper for the pages. The colors are lovely and the pictures are appealing to children (well, to mine at least).

This book is a classic children's book. The poems by Elsa Beskow are beautiful. The drawings portray the seasons and the personalities of the characters pictured - down to the very last little plant. This is a perfect book for education - seasons, months, weather for younger children and flower naming, words and prose for older children. This book is a collection of poems, not a story book. I enjoy this book, as do my children.

Smaller format than I was expecting, but still a very nice, traditional book. I bought it as a gift for my one-year-old, but my three children (six and under) all love reading it over and over.

I would highly recommend these books for anyone interested in handing on to our younger generation a sense of innocent wonderment and an alternative view of the world. My grandson loves them.
