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.
This book is also illustrated with woodcuts which makes it even more amazing to me. The illustrations are carved into white pine, printed in black, and then hand-colored.
I highly recommend Gathering – A Northwoods Counting Book for the content and the illustration style. It offers so many opportunities for discussions with your learners.
