The Longest Night

index-1.phpFor those of you who see winter as endless, this quiet book with a legend feel is for you and your child.

“The snow lies deep. The night is long and long. The stars are ice, the moon is frost, and all the world is still.”

Marion Dane Bauer weaves her poetic magic through the pages, giving voice to the crow, the moose and the fox, all who say they know how to bring back the sun. “‘Not you,’ sighs the wind. ‘Not you.'” The small and powerless chickadee is the one, and through her song, the sun awakens and smiles, casting its rosy glow on the blue and grays of wintry days. Illustrated by Ted LewinThe Longest Night is soft and beautiful, perfect for reading aloud, your voice a song of hope.
