Description : An Earth Child 's Book of the Year is a delicately beautiful evocation of the seasonal round. Marian Louise Camden 's lyrical prose and the detailed pictures by Diane Beem Wright combine to transport young children to a wondrous land. But this special land is in reality an illumination of their very own world. Through the eyes of their new friends, the Earth Children, they are made aware of the significance and beauty of the seasons unfolding as the months pass. Led by the magic of successive moons, children can follow the glories of the year as it makes its circular journey. Each month brings different colours, trees, gems, flowers. At the same time, lives come and go, for there is birth, death and rebirth in the annual round. This is a jewel of a book that will open the eyes of young children to the daily marvels of the world they live in. Finely written and enchantingly illustrated, it is a book for children everywhere to cherish. ---by Claire Hamilton, Celtic author, harpist, and scholar Celtic Myths; The Celtic Book of Seasonal Meditations; Maiden, Mother, Crone; Tales of the Celtic Bards***Reading--and then re-reading out of sheer delight--Marian Camden's An Earth Child's Book of the Year, and taking time to linger over the delightful and intricate illustrations by Diane Wright, a quote I've long cherished kept springing to mind. I believe Camden's story cycle perfectly reflects this statement by Black Elk, an Ogala Sioux, holy man, poet and philosopher: Now we are as one: earth, sky, all living things, the two-legged, the four-legged, the winged ones, the trees, the grasses. Together with the people, they are all related, one family.-from Black Elk Speaks, as told through John G.
