Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Sleds and snowman and singing Christmas carols - the joys of wintertime are celebrated in this beautiful new edition of the 1950 classic by award winner Lois Lenski. Rhyming text and simple illustrations that have been gently recolored make this festive time of year come alive no matter what the season.

As a toddler, it was her absolute favorite.

The book is written in verse and is very rhythmical and catchy...a small child could easily learn this little poem story if it is read to them often.

The pace, the illustrations, and the easy to remember phrases are the type that will keep your child engaged and asking for this book over some of the more flashy newer titles. Buy this book, read it to your kids and they will remember it for a very long time.

I like this book very much. The book is written in verse and is very rhythmical and catchy...a small child could easily learn this little poem story if it is read to them often. It tells of all the fun things a child does in winter...making snowmen, sledding, ice skating, snowball fights, getting ready for Christmas, Christmas Day, and even makes mention of Valentine's Day, which IS a winter holiday! Yes, this book does mention Jesus and as a Christian I like that...He is my King! This book also mentions Santa Claus...we don't have our children believe in Santa, to them he is just a fun story, so Santa in this book isn't an offense to me. Like all Lois Lenski's books, she is very sensitive to a child's mind and what a child likes. Her books are always simple, calm, peaceful, kind, which is why I believe they have stood the test of time...this one is 55 yrs. old and still loved so much. A cute little book for any child and would make a nice Christmas present or even a stocking stuffer, as it is small and "child sized".

I love Lois Lenski's books.
If you are not a Christian, as much as you will love the first 80 percent of the book and its wonderful depictions of the joys of winter, you will find yourself at a loss when Ms. Lenski brings up the baby Jesus. On subsequent pages you will learn that he is our King. If he is not your King you probably should steer clear of this book.

My daughter loved this book from the library, so we bought our own copy. As a toddler, it was her absolute favorite. We acquired the whole Lois Lenski season series and like them all, but I Like Winter is still our favorite! We sing it when we read it out-loud, maybe that's what makes it so fun.
