Goldstone, Bruce Wonderful Winter PICTURE BOOK. 25 pgs. Henry Holt, 2016. $18.00
This book features information about winter told in a simple yet highly informative way, such as how icicles form and why you can see your breath outside. It includes pages that activate the 5 senses, such as what does winter taste like, sound like, and feel like. Features fresh and bright photography that will help to engage student views.
This is now my favorite informational winter book. It is just perfect for a younger grade introduction to winter season. Its engaging, especially with the 5 senses pages, and it large and bright enough to share the entire book with a class. It includes everything I would love to see in a book like this and more. The author does a wonderful job explaining how animals act in the winter, and I even learned a thing or two!
