Quick – what’s the **Winter Solstice? Willy and Lilly could tell you, as could any kid (or parent!) who has read meteorologist and mom Jen Stanonis’s new Moonbeam Award-winning children’s book, Willy and Lilly’s Adventures with Weather. It is the only book for youngsters (the three- to eight-year-old crowd) that shows how the earth’s rotation around the sun creates the seasons and clearly explains fundamental weather concepts like hail, cold fronts and lightning. There’s even a clever glossary that helps parents and teachers pretend to understand these complex topics themselves and explain them in kid-friendly terms. As climate change looms, understanding basic weather phenomena at a very young age becomes more and more important. Willy and Lilly make it fun!
Buffalo Snow is about more than just a snowstorm. It is about friendship and community and family. This delightful tale will entertain and inspire. It is best read while sipping a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows…
** Answer: the Winter Solstice is when the Northern Hemisphere is tilted farthest from the sun, giving us the fewest hours of daylight and making tonight—December 21st—the longest night of the year.
