5 Warm & Wonderful Winter Solstice Books for Kids

My boys are fascinated with daylight savings. Once I explained that the days are not actually shorter than 24 hours, they became even more fascinated with the idea of the earth rotating and the night descending upon us earlier during the fall and winter months.

Although here in the Pacific Northwest we experience a dramatic shift in weather, we embrace and celebrate this time of year. Going outside during the winter months is as important and as much a priority as at any other point during the year. Winter solstice books are a fun way to explore culture, history, and even science.
