Children's Book of the Week

How great is the snow? How great it is to sledge down a giant hill, with the thrill of feeling out of control and alive?

This is what Die Schlittenfahrt is all about (is it just me that has a little guffaw everytime I see the word fahrt? That's a yes then...) And it is all in rhyme so contains a lovely rhythm to this snowy tale. But there is a reluctant father in this case – until he himself remembers how much fun it is in the snow – and then takes over. Suddenly the parents are having the good time, leaving their kids behind! Just a little reminder that playing with children can always be great fun for parents too once they throw their hearts into it J
