According to the weather authorities (shown at left), Winter will be ending early this year. Before the warm up commences, consider taking home some books for the kids to enjoy. The following selections have been chosen by our Youth Library Staff for their entertainment value, artist merits and just for fun! Enjoy the reading!
When Winter Comes by Nancy Van Laan. What happens to all the things that live outside when it gets cold? Walk with a curious child and his parents to find out.
Old Bear and His Cub by Olivier Dunrea. A playful and warm tale highlighting how parents and children care for one another in good times and bad.
Red Sled by Lita Judge. Lush artwork creates great visual images that perform the majority of storytelling in this book about a sled ride through the country.
Ice Bear by Nicola Davies. A beautiful tale about a bear adopted for a time by a hunter and his wife. One day, the bear child wanders off, and a bear comes to return him to his mother. The hunter thinks his adopted child has been stolen and sets off to find the culprit.
Is That You Winter? by Stephen Gammell. Fantastic artwork, briefly told story, surprise ending. Winner of the Minnesota Book Award.
Sneezy The Snowman by Maureen Wright. What do you do if you have a cold snowman? Give him cocoa, sit him in a hot-tub, and set him by the fire. Oh, oh, he's melted! Silly fun for all ages.
