Realistic Fiction, Seasons
I bet you thought summer was the warmest season with hot sunshine days, but I’ll let you know that winter is actually the warmest season. Think of all you do to keep warm and toasty during the cold months. Winter is the Warmest Season is a delightful book with vibrant colors that show many warm activities during winter. We now drink hot cocoa and soup, instead of cold juice in the summer. In the winter, we light fires and turn on heaters, instead of fans in the summer. We bundle up in coats, hats, scarves, and gloves. Our beds are warm with blankets, perhaps even an electric blanket. Even animals snuggle warm on laps, near the fire, or upon comfortable beds. There’s nothing better than staying warm while reading a great book. In fact, I think books are even better when we’re all snuggled.
