When It’s Winter by Karen A. Wyle

Book Blurb:

What makes winter special? This picture book celebrates the many fun activities and sensory experiences of the season. Follow a girl and her dog through the play and discoveries of a snowy day, and on toward bedtime.

The first person narrative will encourage new readers to claim it as their own. The repetition of the phrase “When it’s winter . . .” will encourage children to chime in, and be of assistance to early readers. 

I received an advance copy of this book for free, and I’m leaving this review voluntarily. 

Lexi’s Review:

It’s a snowy January day in southeast Virginia, so this children’s book is an appropriate and cozy read for me right now. I enjoyed reading You Can’t Kiss a Bubble by Ms. Wyle, so I was excited to read this one, and the cute simplicity didn’t disappoint. 

I love the sensory imagery, “When it’s winter… I step out in the morning, and my nose hairs tingle,” because it reminds me of my childhood in Michigan (Wyle 4). 

I give this book five stars. It would be a great addition to a home library or a classroom library in the north where children are familiar with the cold, or in the south where children haven’t experienced the cold yet.
