Trees are tipped in wisps of green.
Let's stretch our legs and run on soft, fresh grass."
~ Seasons of Joy, Claudia Marie Lenart
Published in 2017, Seasons of Joy: Every Day is for Outdoor Play is a children's book written and illustrated by nature enthusiast and fiber artist Claudia Marie Lenart. The illustrations are finely rendered, colorful, 3-D wool paintings. I know I would have lingered over these exquisite pictures as a child. As an adult, I appreciate the many fine, artistic details in this book, as well as the simple yet profound message, to go outside and enjoy the beauty of nature, year-round.
Seasons of Joy is a gorgeous tribute to the four seasons. It begins with our current season, Spring. (My iPhoto below really does not do justice to this fine artwork.)
In the book, children will see that each season is special and beautiful. Seasons of Joy features short, rhyming prose and lovely, soft wool paintings. This picture book is truly a joy to look at and to read! It depicts the beauty of the seasons and gently encourages children--and adults--to go outside and enjoy nature. What could be better than that?
Every Saturday, Booking Mama hosts Kid Konnection, a fun feature that highlights books for children. Many thanks to Victor from Loving Healing Press for sending me this new children's book.
