What a sweet, cozy story! Full of the magic of childhood--a simple story of a snowy day, with young children enjoying pancakes, playing dress-up, making snow angels, baking cake with Mom, reading and writing stories, etc. Filled me with fond memories and a yearning to be five years old again!
Talking with my daughters yesterday, Rebecca mentioned that she had taken THIS book with her when she moved to the Netherlands with her new husband. Just the mention of it brings back warm memories - Rebecca was the younger sister (blonde), and Beth was (and is) her brunette older sister. This was one of their favorite stories - I can still remember a lot of it, and they are now both close to 30.
This is an old favorite. I'd forgotten I even had a copy, but while sorting through some stuff, I discovered it and couldn't resist giving it a reread. Yep, still a magical, beautiful book! Brings back memories.
This is one of my all time favorite books. As as child I loved to read this classic story about winter time. And even today, I enjoy reading it to my own kids. It brings back memories of those happy winter days, sledding, baking cookies, playing pretend and just enjoying childhood.
This book makes me feel all warm and hot cocoa-ish inside, it's wonderfully cozy and snow angel-y and I love the pictures so much. I think the main reason I love winter now is that it made me so happy when I was little. And this book reminds me of why :)
