We have been reading lots of books about Winter recently and we have had lots of lovely story books from our local library.  I wanted to buy one book to add to our new seasonal table that I have created.  I scoured blogs and the Internet for good ones and asked for suggestions on the forum that I visit.  One suggestion really caught my eye, it sounded like it would be suitable for both my children so I went ahead and bought a copy.

The Winter Book by Rotraut Susanne Berner is a compilation of stories,

poems, songs,

writing on winter festivals including Diwali, Winter Solstice, Hanukkah and Christmas, and lovely pictures.

Both the children have loved having different parts of the book read to them and my eldest has read much of the book himself.

I very much hope that this book will be read and looked at for years to come.
