Have you heard of the Danish concept of "hygge"? It's all about spending time with family and friends in a cozy atmosphere. The perfect hygge time would be inviting friends over on a chilly night for a warm bowl of chili with chocolate cake for dessert or having a night in with family sitting around in pajamas and playing board games. I just love the idea of hygge!
When publishers Little Gestalten sent me a copy of their book My Four Seasons, the first thing that I noticed about it was that the story and illustrations have a very cozy, comforting, hygge mood. It made me feel more relaxed just flipping through the pages!
This story follows one family through the seasons of the year beginning with a snowy, winter New Year's Day, then gardening in the Spring, swimming and drinking lemonade in the summer, playing in the colorful autumn leaves, and skiing on fresh powdery snow. Each season brings new ways to be together as a family, and this book celebrates that! What's more hygge than family spending time together cherishing what makes each season special?
Here are several more books that give us that cozy, hygge feeling. This part of my post contains affiliated links which means that if you buy something, I will get a small compensation at no cost to you. Thanks for supporting businesses that support my blog!
