Sketches of the Seasons

This series of four books walks you through each of the changing seasons from a fresh perspective, working with the Celtic cross-quarter days as timing for beginning to connect with each changing season.


Each full-sized book includes an illustrated story, as well as ideas for celebrating the shifting season, nourishment, kid crafting, and inspiration for adult reflection time.


Each tiny book includes the illustrated story portion of the full-sized book. At 9cm x 9cm they are perfect for little hands and so very cute!
