Most people think summer is the warmest season. This story, however, is brimming with evidence to the contrary--from roaring fires to grilled cheese sandwiches to toasty flannel pajamas. A unique twist on the traditional wintertime picture book, the beautiful visual narrative follows a boy and his family though a day of hot breakfasts, steaming afternoon cocoa, and a festive candlelit party before bed.
With its inviting scenes, poetic text, and gorgeous illustrations, Winter Is the Warmest Season celebrates all the wonderful things that make winter the coziest time of the year.
LAUREN STRINGER has illustrated many picture-book favorites, including Castles, Caves, and Honeycombs by Linda Ashman and Mud by Mary Lyn Ray. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
