This winter feels like we're living in Narnia under the rule of the White Witch -it is always winter and never Christmas! The drifts on the road are now taller than a pick-up truck in places. If the joy of new snow has lost it's luster read The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. It captures the wandering adventures of a little boy named Peter as he explores his snow-covered world.
If you would rather count your blessings of food, shelter and warmth read The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder. When you read it in the middle of a winter storm the determination and strength of that little house takes on a whole new meaning. Make sure you have plenty of hot chocolate on hand to keep you warm while you read!
