Here Comes Jack Frost by Kazuno Kohara

Today is the first day of Winter~although it feels like it has been here for months already. My favorite part of the Winter Solstice is that the days start to get longer again. I really don't like the dark.

In Honor of this first day of Winter I thought I would suggest a beautiful new book by Kuzuno Kohara called Here Comes Jack Frost. This is a wonderful book to read today and in the coming days because it is about the joy of appreciating the coldest time of year. At least here in this hemisphere. The sweet lyrical words evoke a kind magic that is also present in the illustrations. The story also shows how a child can use their imagination to have fun.
This would be a perfect last minute gift for any child!
