Reviews - What do customers think about Now It Is Winter?
Adorable Jan 28, 2006
My Kindergarten son brought this home from the school library and I think it is just an adorable book. The illustrations are so cute and the story is charming too. Will spring ever come? is the reoccuring theme. Will spring ever come with black berries and cream? Now it is winter with oatmeal and brown sugar. So many cute little references can't help but leave readers feeling cozy all ready for the comfy bed time tuck in at the end of the book. Curl up with your child reading this on a chlly night and you'll feel warm inside.
Musical and Gentle Jan 27, 2006
A quiet story full of musical words that reveal the joys a child can experience in winter. Throughout the book, the message flows to celebrate the present and to have patience for the future. The illustrations are whimsical.
