These board books have no words, which allows parent and child to narrate their own stories. This helps develop vocabulary and language skills by having toddler 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 enjoy them, too, as they grow in awareness of the rhythm of the year.
When I taught in a Waldorf school I this set of four seasonal board books in my kindergarten classroom. As each season changed, I would put away one book, and bring out the new one. Always a delight for the children!
