Beautiful Children Books

Updated: Oct 15

We have been living in “isolation life” for two months and have been a tough moment because of COVID19. But NYC finally expected to reopen June 8th. It will be July for us to reopen because my industry is categorized in phase 2 of the reopening schedule.

Our Midtown west studio is currently closed due to NYC pause order. Our business is still open as remote work. We will announce when we reopen.


外出規制生活も2か月がすぎました。COVID19に加えデモなど色々と問題はありますが、NYCもようやく再開にむけて動き始めたところです。私たちの業種も7月を再開の目安にして準備がすすんでいます。

現在ミッドタウンウエストのスタジオは閉鎖中ですがビジネスはリモート作業のみ対応しています。再開が確定した際にはご案内させていただきます。


During stay home, Reading time is necessary for my little one like other kids. I would like to share about children's picture books that are our favorite and have beautiful illustrations. There are many picture books that I would like to read for my daughter. Below are the books illustrated by Elsa Beskow and Sibylle von Olfers


さて今日は少し子供の絵本について書きたいとおもいます。

美しい挿絵を娘にみせたくて選んだ絵本がいくつかあります。

エルサべスコフとジビュレ・フォン オルファースのイラストレーションの絵本たちです





The Children of Hat Cottage is one of my daughter's favorite. I often read the story at her bedtime.

Elsa Beskaw's stories have lovely details. The illustrations are gentle and soft tones.



写真のHat cottage は娘も気に入っていて、ベッドタイムによく読む絵本なのですが、まだ文章の読めない娘ですが、部分的に暗唱できるほどになりました.エルサべスコフのイラストは優しいトーンでストーリには愛らしさがあります。


i share some picture books of Elsa Beskow and Sibylle von Olfers below. 

いくつか素敵な絵本を以下にシェアしておきます。

スウェーデンの絵本作家エルサべスコフの絵本の世界は自然の描写にあふれた美しい絵本です。


I also share Orpheus picture books called The Root Children.

"The Root Children" has a lot of beautiful phrases to explain changing season from winter to spring, summer, and autumn. I think that my daughter has become aware of delicate changes of each four seasons as a natural thing through this picture book's story. I feel that it is a wonderful children's book with a wide range of expressions of nature and seasons.





Sibylle von Olfers(8 May 1881 – 29 January 1916) was a German art teacher and a nun who worked as an author and illustrator of children's books. (Wikipedia)


次にもうひとつ。オルファースの絵本をシェアします。

ねっこぼっこのこどもたちは冬から春、夏、秋とうつりゆく季節の描写がとても表現豊かで娘も小さな変化に敏感に反応します。娘はこの絵本で四季の変化を自然tと意識するようになったと思います。自然の描写や自然の色の描写、種類とにかく表現の幅が広い絵本だと感じました。



The illustrations and stories of both authors' are attractive to us.

Children's attention naturally goes to their little world. They are nice picture books to feel how to enjoy seasonal changes.



どちらの作者のイラストレーションもその挿絵の美しさとストーリーの世界観に魅せられます。

さらに四季や自然の描写に子供の意識が自然と向かうのでとても素晴らしい絵本だと感じました。5歳ではまだ少し難しい表現もあるのですがとても素敵な一生ものの絵本です。
