We are settling into the cosy days of Autumn here. The leaves have begun changing colour, the air is a little cooler and the sun a little more golden.
I am always on the lookout for brand new Montessori compatible nature books and so when Winter Sleep – A Hibernation Story came out last week I knew I had to grab it!
It’s the sweet story of a child who visits their grandmother’s home in the summer and loves exploring nature.
The illustrations are beautiful and whimsical but also extremely detailed.
The child returns in winter and asks to see the glade where they sat in summer, but is worried when it’s covered in snow. Where are all the flowers and the animals?
What I really love about this book is the information pages at the back.
There’s so much information on how different animals survive the coldest months of the year.
There’s also a section at the end on how people can help animals through the winter.
This is such a perfect book to share with children 3-6 years old. It will be on our shelves for years to come.
