Each of the books take the reader through both a journey in the northwoods and a journey through the calendar year.
Gathering – A Northwoods Counting Book
This time Bowen takes the reader on a journey from zero to twelve, tracing out her family’s northwoods activities from May to December. She shares about cords of wood, blueberries, wild rice, and even extension cords.
Gathering is also illustrated with amazing woodcuts. The illustrations are carved into white pine, printed in black, and then hand-colored.
I highly recommend Gathering – A Northwoods Counting Book for both the content and the illustration style. The book offers so many opportunities for discussions with your learners.
This is part of my A Month of Cozy Books series!
