Teddy loves our Waldorf inspired board books.

He loves to read them over and over again. Pointing to all the things, telling me when he sees a doll, a cat or a boat.

Three of his favourites board books are wordless. Books that allow children to create their own stories and really take their time enjoying beautiful illustrations. Books that I hadn’t appreciated myself until I saw my own children respond to them.

Our 5 favourite board books

Rain or Shine by Ronald Heuninck is a sweet wordless board board that illustrates the fun children can enjoy outside no matter the weather.

With beautiful soft illustrations of children feeding the ducks in the rain, jumping rope in the sunshine, picking apples in the Autumn this is a truly lovely book. And one that can be enjoyed all year round as it shows the year through the seasons.

For more seasonal board books you can’t go past the lovely collection from Gerda Muller of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.

These lovely seasonal books would have to be a firm family favourite here. Again these board books are wordless, allowing the children to create their own sweet seasonal tales. My children love re-discovering these lovely books in our book nook as the seasons roll around.

Teddy received A New Day by Ronald Heuninck last year and loves that it is his book.

A New Day is about the sweet simple days children enjoy at home with their mothers. From waking in the morning, making sure dolly is fed breakfast, a walk near a lake and helping in the kitchen, I think this story meets children beautifully with their understanding of the world.

Pippa and Pelle by Daniela Drescher is the whimsical story of two friends enjoying a Summer’s day. They see Mr Snail and wonder what it would be like to live in his shell. They talk to a busy beetle who is collecting leaves for his home, and talk to the frog who lives in the water.

This is a lovely written story with sweet whimsical illustrations to complement the story.

hello-sacred-life

Hello Sacred Life by Kim Krans is one of Ruby’s favourite stories. A story she has committed to memory and loves to ‘read’ to her little brother.

It is a beautiful and simple story that celebrates this life we live. From the sacred sun, the sacred moon, the sacred children ~ this is a sacred life.

Max is so very excited about Advent this year.

After listening to Martin & Sylvia’s Audio Advent he asked if he could be an Advent Helper.

The Advent Helper sends magical letters to children in the lead up to Christmas.

Max has so many advent ideas! First we needed to get craft supplies to write Advent letters to Ruby and Teddy!

He carefully cut out numbers and stuck them onto our red and green envelopes.

Next we made a list of things to do on our journey to Christmas.

But on the 1st of December, Max wanted us to write a letter to Ruby and Teddy explaining how advent would work this year.

This is like the letter the Advent Helpers sent to Martin & Sylvia

And he has been asking me when he can post it to them ever since *grin*

I love that Max is so very excited about our Advent journey, but more than that, he wants to make it magical for his sister and brother.

And that is the spirit of Christmas working through him,

Max has also discovered Sparkle Stories new Junkyard Tales audio advent. I wonder what new ideas he will have for next year now!

And if you’d like to have a listen, you can start your Sparkle Stories Free 10-Day Trial now!
