Festival of Nature

It is midsummer's Eve and flowers of all categories and sizes come out to celebrate. Children will especially enjoy the 'stories within the story' as part of the festival is a storytelling contest. The illustrations in this book are beyond compare. Elsa Beskow has an amazing ability to bring out the personality of the flowers and plants in her drawings and words. An impatient two year old may not be able to sit queitly on your lap for this long tale, but just hearing this story read to older children while palying in the same room, has a calming effect on my "spirited" two-year-old. This book has a place on the top shelf of the children's book section in our home - next to other treasures and in sight, but out of reach of little hands.

This one's a favorite!

Elsa Beskow's books honor the curiousity and innocence of children. No wonder Hearth Song toy stores have carried them all at one time or another. We love The Flowers' Festival not just for the beautiful illustrations, but because it gives names and faces to all our favorite flowers and weeds. This book has deepened our curiousity and appreciation of our daily world. Beskow's books remind us of the simple celebrations of life. We'll pass this one on for generations!
