The bear wanders around the animals in the circle, rumble bumble, and they all dash away to their separate parts of the forest. He climbs up the path through the woods to his warm cave and curls up snug, while the first snow begins to fall.
Older children who can sit through a long story might like Linda Kroll's beautifully illustrated Winter, Awake!
As we wrap books and change out the Nature table display, I want to do a quick blog post of some of my favorite family moments from this Autumn. I blog here with many hats on... lead classroom teacher in my co-op... student in Waldorf teacher training... homeschool curriculum consultant... and, last but not least, Mom.
I recently realized that not only do I have four children, but each one of them was born in a different season of the year! My November daughter is the Autumn child. My January daughter is the Winter child. My March daughter is the Spring child. And my son Zac was born on Memorial Day weekend so I'm counting him as the Summer child!
Each season we have a wonderful chance to sit down together as a family and celebrate the passing of time.
Here is my family (three teenagers and a two and a half year old) celebrating Autumn in many ways this year:
I hope your family had a wonderful Autumn as well.
