A WINTER READ FOR CHILDREN'S CORNER
It's March 1st and a fresh blanket of snow is falling on Brooklyn. Appropriately, I've just finished reading a picture book entitled The Snow Lambs by Debi Gliori.
A young boy, his father and their dog are in the process of bringing in their sheep from pasture when a snow storm starts. As father and son are finishing their task, the boy realizes the dog is missing and the boy must stay inside safe and warm as he worries about his dog out in the snow, cold and dark.
A story with a surprise ending partially hinted at in the first few sentences of the book, it is a nice tale to read to the little ones on a winter's night. Originally published during 1998 by Scholastic for ages 4 and up, it is currently available on Amazon.
