Synopsis

Winter Wonderland by Jill Esbaum

Each year, as the days grow short and dark, and the trees become bare and grey, the world outside seems to go to sleep. But for children, this time of year is magical. There's a sense of excitement and wonder in the air, as blankets of white snow make way for outdoor adventures that aren't possible any other time of the year. Building snowmen, sledding, ice skating, the air is filled with laughter and play. Winter means family, as loved ones travel thousands of miles to see nieces and nephews, grandparents, brothers and sisters. Holiday traditions bring that spark of warmth and togetherness that only seems to happen once a year. Traditions, passed down through generations are observed, candles and fires create a soft winter glow. Winter means Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. Waking up in the morning as soon as the sun rises to see what presents might await. Gathering around trees, or menorahs, singing, laughing. Drinking egg nog, cider, and hot chocolate, eating a holiday feast.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
