    At the beginning of each year, we like to take a moment to look at all the wonderful books we’re proud to be publishing in the coming months. So what new Floris books do we have coming in 2018?

    Board Books

    This Spring, our new board books celebrate nature and the changing seasons. In January, we bring together Gerda Muller’s much-loved ‘Seasons’ books in the

    2018 new Floris Books - Muller

    Seasons Gift Collection. Showcasing the stunning work of Australian artist Sarah Laidlaw, Through the Seasons will also join our range. This bright but delicate board book is wordless, so children and parents can create their own story.

    We complete Daniela Drescher’s seasonal cycle with Pippa and Pelle in the Spring Garden. This beautifully-illustrated story is filled with flourishing flowers and interesting insects.  And we add to another favourite collection – our board books from Loes Botman. In January, we’ll ask Hello Birds, What Do You Say?

    Picture Books

    Gerda Muller takes us back to the garden with How Does My Fruit Grow? in January. This bright and detailed picture book teaches children all about the fruit we eat, and makes a perfect companion to How Does My Garden Grow? and A Year in Our New Garden.

    Also in January, we’re incredibly excited to publish Charlie’s Magical Carnival from celebrated author and illustrator Marit Törnqvist. In this vibrant and adventurous picture book, you can enter the world of Charlie’s imagination – unfold the magic with fold-out pages full of surprises!

    Our final children’s book for Spring is a very special bedtime story. Bear Child is the warm and ethereal story of the bear folk, special beings who can choose to take bear or human form. Geoff Mead’s modern folktale combines with Sanne Dufft’s inspiring illustrations to create a story full of love and warmth.

    The Christian Community

    In 2018, we’ll also add a host of new Floris Books non-fiction titles to our collection.

    Early in the Spring, we’ll publish two key explorations of thought in The Christian Community. Freidrich Rittelmeyer’s Reincarnation: A Christian Perspective (January) engages with a concept rarely considered in Western religion. And Peter Selg explores the close but often contradictory relationship between Rudolf Steiner and The Christian Community (March).

    Steiner-Waldorf Education

    New Floris Books 2018 - String, Straight-edge and Shadow
    Later in the Spring, we’ll add two essential books for Steiner-Waldorf teachers. Robin Cook’s new translation of The Legend of Parzival (May) retells this classic and meaningful story, ideal for Class 8 and above.

    A must-read for those teaching geometry, String, Straight-edge and Shadow is an engaging, illustrated book that weaves history and legend to tell the history of the subject (June).

    Look out for an important addition to the Karl König Archive in May. The Spirit of Camphill: Birth of a Movement (Volume 18) explains the guiding principles behind the Camphill movement in König’s own words.

    Parenting and Child Development

    Last, but certainly not least, is our latest book on Parenting and Child Development. Child behaviour expert Christiane Kutik explains how to instill twelve essential qualities – including self-esteem and compassion – in your children, in Parenting with Values (March).

    I’m sure you’ll agree that our Spring and Summer catalogue has something for everyone. And, of course, we’ll have even more books to add to your collection later in the year!
