Celebrate the seasons with young children!

Winter is one of the four wordless Seasons books created by renowned illustrator Gerda Muller. Loved for almost 30 years, the Seasons books are full of lively and charming vintage illustrations, which children will enjoy returning to again and again.

This chunky board book shares the joys of the season – children building snowmen, ice-skating, throwing snowballs, and decorating the Christmas tree.

Created without words, this delightful book encourages very young children to engage with the illustrations, create their own stories and spot details in the wintery scenes.


'The illustrations are packed with detail and give you lots to talk about. The book was equally enjoyed by babies and older children and has more to offer than the average board book.'

'This set of four picture books are a lovely way to inspire creativity and imagination in your little one. Each book contains its own season packed full of detailed drawings … The most wonderful thing about these books is that the story is always different, there are always new things to discover and new stories to tell. If you are looking for some creative ways to introduce the Seasons to your kids or even just hoping to get some picture books, this set is a definite must.'
