Le plus bel été du monde, by Delphine Perret
A timeless picture book about transmission, the power of learning and the complicity throughout moments in time, shared between grown-ups and children.
Delphine Perret tells us about a summer a young boy spends with her mother, in his grandparents’ house which becomes « the most beautiful summer ever » thanks to the everlasting capacity of childhood wonderment. Mother and son, true accomplices, share together funny or tender fleeting moments, of infinite simplicity and beauty: they discover birds and insects, they pick up blackberries, deal with the spider in the bathroom… and many more. Every child will recognise him or herself in these little moments!
All in all, this picture book tells the story of all the seasons the child will need to fit into the world, find his place within his family and nature as well.
