One of our Books of the Year 2015 - November 2015 Julia Eccleshare's Book of the Month Beautifully illustrated, this buoyant and cheerful story captures Robin’s delight as the new season arrives! There’s a chill in the air and all of Robin’s friends are flying away to somewhere warmer. They make winter sound scary, greedy and cold. When Bear goes off for his long winter sleep Robin snuggles up with him so as to avoid all the bad things he has heard about. But Robin doesn’t sleep for long and soon is he out enjoying the wonderful new weather with new friends. An excellent introduction to the seasons. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Robin decided he didn't like the sound of Winter one little bit. But that was before the snow ...
Suzanne Barton’s stunning debut picture book, The Dawn Chorus, was shortlisted for The Waterstones Children’s Book Prize. Robin’s Winter Song is her second book. It is a wonderfully heartfelt story of a little robin's first winter - destined to become a classic.
