Today at the library, I discovered a beautiful book about the Winter Solstice that I want to share with you!

This post contains affiliate links for your convenience. You can read my full disclosure policy here.

The Longest Night by Marion Dane Bauer tells the story of the snow-filled forest on the longest night of the year. Who will be able to bring back the sun?

Accompanied by beautiful watercolor pictures, this sweet story ends: “And with the song of one small bird and the sun’s answering smile the journey toward spring begins.”

This book would be the perfect family read aloud in the midst of all the hustle and bustle.

    1. Oh, I think you’ll really like it! Different animals gruffly say they’ll bring back the sun, but the wind sighs “not you.” I love those little chickadees!
