Today’s vintage pick, “De Natuur” (Casterman, 1971) comes from the talented French illustrator Alain Grée. This particular translation appears to be in Dutch, which makes for some much more interesting bird names (see below). Explore nature with his bobble-headed characters as they learn about animals, plants, mountains, and oceans. You may also learn a few sailor knots and fishing tips! We love a classic encyclopedia-type children’s book, and this is certainly one of the coolest. Grée educates in style!
