Es ist wirklich ein sehr hübsches Buch, welches sehr gut geeignet ist Kindern Gemütlichkeit und die natürliche Zyklus der Jahreszeiten nahe zu bringen. Das Buch hat hübsche Zeichnungen, tolle Bastelideen, Lieder, saisonale Rezepte, Spiele, Reime und vieles mehr - alles nach Jahreszeiten geordnet, so dass Kinder wunderschön die Verbindung zwischen Natur und Traditionen erfahren können. Sehr empfehlenswert.
January cold desolate; February all dripping wet; March wind ranges; April changes; Birds sing in tune To flowers of May, And sunny June Brings longest day; In scorched July The storm-clouds fly Lightning torn; August bears corn, September fruit; In rough October Earth must disrobe her; Stars fall and shoot In keen November; And night is long And cold is strong In bleak December. - Christina Rosetti
Sunrise Look to this day: For it is life, the very life of life. In its brief course Lie all the verities and realities of your existence. The bliss of growth, The glory of action, The splendour of achievement Are but experiences of time.
For yesterday is but a dream And tomorrow is only a vision; And today well-lived, makes Yesterday a dream of happiness And every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this day; Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn! - Kalidasa
I found my copy of this book in a thrift store and soon had friends asking where to buy the book. It is a gem of information about holidays and how to celebrate them, including recipies (I baked the Autumn Nut Loaf for Thanksgiving this year) and games and songs. It's presented in an interesting and lovely manner, and even has a Birthday Calendar in the back to keep track of family and friend's birthdays. The author's premise is that the more celebrations and festivals you celebrate with your family, the closer you become. I second this opinion and urge you to read this book and start celebrating!!!
