Winter urges us to snuggle up with a good book, shutting out the cold and reconnecting with our impulse to nest. What a lovely idea, then, this collection is: The Winter Book celebrates the coldest season from the late days of fall and Halloween to the earliest days of spring and Groundhog Day. Including prose from lauded authors, songs like Mozart's My Little Apple and We Three Kings of Orient Are, and informational texts on international celebrations like Chinese New Year, Kwanzaa, Diwali, and Dia de los Reyes, this compendium reminds us of that magical season between autumn and spring.
