Grimm's Weather Cardboard Book New Item 2020


We are very happy with our first ever Grimm's book, created in collaboration with the German illustrator Sarah Settgast. The 26-page board book uses 24 lovingly designed illustrations to tell stories about the weather and everything associated with it.

The 24 chosen themes are spelled out from our Grimm's Wooden Letters and frame each illustration in both English and German. Sarah Settgast illustrated almost 100 of our wooden toys and then included them into her illustrations using collage technique. There is a lot to discover in this book, because anyone who loves Grimm's Wooden Toys will happily search for the many toys made in our workshops that are hidden in the illustrations.

Even little ones will enjoy looking and telling stories together. The capital letters are wonderful for early learning and also for the introduction to foreign language learning in primary school or at home. And of course the board book is a delightful decoration for every season table. An experience for the whole family and for all the senses!

Recommended Age 12+ months

Fanastic bilingual book

As a German raising two littles in Australia it's at times hard to find educational books written in German. Love that this has both languages so my kids can make the connection between the German and English words. Lovely illustrations!

Ash Faye
A beautiful accompaniment to the Weather Set

This book is a beautiful accompaniment to the weather set. Bonus that the words are in English and German and the photos feature other Grimm’s characters. Love it!
