A Warm Winter
One cold winter morning Little Mouse ventures out in search of enough firewood to heat his nest. But when he tries to drag his pile home, he realizes everything he’s gathered is much too heavy for him. His friends all want to help, but they’d better hurry, because there’s a blizzard on the way.
If they can find a way to work together and keep each other safe, maybe they can all have the warm winter they've been hoping for. This beautifully illustrated picture book shows the power of friendship, persistence–and a little luck–to make our dreams come true. This is a winter story that will warm your heart.

“A warming read.” – Kirkus Reviews
“Themes of teamwork, selflessness, and persistence run through the narrative and will reach readers of all ages…. The setting is enchanting and the illustrations so realistically rendered that they look almost like photographs of the forest in winter. The title, A Warm Winter, has a dual meaning, and the book could serve as the basis for language arts or character-building lessons. VERDICT A heartwarming read-aloud that children will love to snuggle up with and listen to.” – School Library Journal
