Today is the winter solstice….the shortest day of the year…and we wanted to highlight a book from our collection: The Shortest Day by Newbery Medalist Susan Cooper and Caldecott Honoree Carson Ellis.
We often get book bundle requests for children’s books about the winter solstice, light and dark, and celebrating the returning sun.
When The Shortest Day one is not checked-out (as it has been most of December), it one of our go-tos for those requests.
What stories do you love this time of year? What books do you revisit around the holidays?
