I am a self-proclaimed book fiend. Children's literature holds a special place in my heart - I think it is because my mother is an avid book lover herself and taught me from very early on to love classic, well-written children's literature.
Beautiful, enriching illustrations are just a part of the draw of a wonderful children's story, and so most of the books we review here will have gorgeous drawings.
You will not find any lackluster books on this blog. No vulgar Dora, Spongebob or Disney.
We believe in books that beautify the experience of growing up and learning.

Circle of Seasons by Gerda Muller

I love love love this book. A new favorite.
And, judging by the price on Amazon, so do a lot of other people. Yikes.
I was going to get this one for the piglets for Christmas (we have a library copy at our house right now) but I'm not sure I can dole out $25 for a used copy - a new copy is $330!

What a gorgeous way to teach your children about the seasons of the year. The illustrations are to-die-for. Colorful and engaging and just the right amount of old-fashioned charm. This one takes a close second to Tasha Tudor books for me.

Now...how to (legally) get my hands on my own copy...
