Family favorite Eric Carle has created a winter story with a very special ending for Farmer, his five animal friends, and Tree. You can just feel the crisp cool air and the magic of the first snow of the year by the end of the story.
Winter Is the Warmest Season
written and illustrated by Lauren Stringer
Winter? Cold? It's all in the way you look at things: Puffy warm jackets, gloves and boots, hot baths, hissing radiators, fires in fireplaces, hot chocolate, grilled cheese, animals asleep under thick blankets of snow, warm-footed pajamas, longer lasting books, and warmer hugs all are part of the argument that winter is warmest!

The Winter Visitors

What visitors come to the summer cottage in the winter months, you'd be surprised! This story is told through beautiful pictures with the help of only a few words.

Grandmother Winter shakes her quilt full of goose feathers and the weather gets cold. Animals hunker down for the winter and children play outside in the snow. Poetic text paired with beautiful scratchboard-and-watercolor illustrations make for a cozy book to curl up when the weather is cold.
