Mother Earth And Her Children by Sibylle Von Olfers

This is an amazingly beautiful book about the coming of spring.  It is based off a gorgeous quilt made by Sieglinde Schoen-Smith.  There is a little Violet child in the book and we had fun hunting for her and her violet plant.  The kids were able to recognized the flower and the leaves in the book!  We explored this book during our Spring solstice celebration ~ Violet Equinox

  1. This looks beautiful! I’m always looking for good books to share with my kids – and I have a lot more for Solstice than for Equinox.

    • HI There! This book is really mostly about the seasons and how they change starting with Spring, then we just went from reading the book to our celebration of the Equinox with the lovely violet! The book is truely just a delight for the eyes. Thanks for visiting!

  2. That book looks so beautiful! It reminds me of a book we reviewed called Earth Child’s Book of the Year by Marian Louise Camden. Thanks so much for sharing it in the Kid Lit Blog Hop. I’m so glad you were able to join us and I’m now following you via FB. 🙂
