Return to Art Blog and Book Reviews

Well it really snowed a lot here in Western New York this week so I thought it was a good time to review Winter Is Here by Kevin Henkes on my youtube channel Great Books for Kids Reviewed by Michelle Marcotte


This writing team from Madison Wisconsin knows winter in all its depth, sounds, sights, fun and irritations. Perfectly explained in simply elegant language and softly, gently, illustrated a young child will learn how winter arrives, stays and finally changes to spring. 


In this book, winter is fun for kids and kind to animals. Kids are told to dress warmly and animals are shown taking shelter.


If you know a child who is going to experience their second or third winter this season, this is the perfect book to prepare them for winter fun.


This book is perfect for 2 to 4 year olds and can be purchased from GreenWillow Books from Harper Collins or wherever great books are sold. And don’t forget to try your local library too.
