Gathering – A Northwoods Counting Book

Post may contain affiliate links to materials I recommend. Read my full disclosure statement.

Gathering – A Northwoods Counting Book by Betsy Bowen is the companion book to another favorite cozy book I’ve already shared, Antler, Bear, Canoe – A Northwoods Alphabet Year.

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.

This is part of my A Month of Cozy Books series!

“We who live in quiet places have the opportunity to become acquainted with ourselves, to think our own thoughts and live our own lives in a way that is not possible for those keeping up with the crowd.”
Laura Ingalls Wilder

“After Laura and Mary had washed and wiped the dishes, swept the floor, made their bed, and dusted, they settled down with their books. But the house was so cozy and pretty that Laura kept looking up at it.”

On the Banks of Plum Creek

“They were cosy and comfortable in their little house made of logs, with the snow drifted around it and the wind crying because it could not get in by the fire.”
