Firsts & Lasts: The Changing Seasons

Jun 3, 2023

Transitions aren’t always easy.

As we enter the final countdown of the school year, it can be a big transition for the children in our lives.

This book reminds us that with every ending comes a new beginning.

“Summer is… the last time we wear flannel pajamas, the last time we sleep with the windows closed,…And it’s also—the first time we go barefoot in the squishy grass, and the first time we hear June bugs hitting screens,..”

Firsts & Lasts by Leda Schubert is a picture book that celebrates the changing of the seasons with splashy colours and beautiful collage artwork by Clover Robin.

What I love about this book is that it illustrates not only what begins with each change of season, but it also helps us to see what we are letting go of.

Changes can feel bittersweet at times.

 This book helps us to see it all and to celebrate the miracle of nature’s changing seasons. It also feels like a great book to help a little one in your life honour the endings and beginnings they are experiencing.

The last day of school is also the first day of summer! ☀️

Helps with: the changing seasons, transitions, letting go of the old, welcoming the new, nature’s cycles, the miracle of nature.
