White snowy Angels with wide sweeping wings Let's find the wonders that God's winter brings. Children explore the delights of winter from A to Z in this charming book that celebrates the season's blessings: from the sparkle of lights to the warmth of a quilt and the scent of fresh-baked cookies. As children review the alphabet, they discover the joy and beauty of wintertime, whether revealed in the bustle of the holidays or the quiet of a snowy walk. S is for Snowman is the latest installment in Ms. Wargin's alphabet-centered picture book series that includes K is for Kite, F is for Fireflies, and P is for Pumpkin.

About the Author
When Kathy-jo Wargin was a young girl, each night after dinner, her mother let her choose between washing the dishes or writing a poem. Before long, she decided that if she grew up to be a writer, she wouldn't have to do any dishes. She has since learned that even though she has published more than twenty award-winning books for children, she still has to wash the dishes. Kathy-jo lives in Minnesota with her husband and her son.
