Wonderful Winter

What does winter feel like or taste like? What can you do when the weather is cold? Some people cannot wait for the snow to fall so that they can go snowboarding, sledding or skating while others fear trying to drive on the slippery roads.

Every year, I dread having to shovel my sidewalks and chip away at the ice. Winter may feel like a season of snow and misery but there are many amazing things happening in the cold. In Bruce Goldstone’s new book, Wonderful Winter: All Kinds of Winter Facts and Fun he explains to children ages 4-8 how the wax on the needles of an evergreen tree help it survive in winter or how icicles form on the edge of the roof. You may have heard about animals that hibernate in winter but have you heard about animals that instead are in a state of torpor? How is a cold climate rabbit different than one that lives in a warm climate? Through fascinating photographs and engaging facts, Goldstone transforms winter into a special time of year with sparkling six-sided snowflakes, good food to eat, and fun holidays to celebrate. Goldstone also includes a few fun winter inspired activities to try out on those long dark nights.
