Book Sharing Monday

So, after not really keeping up with sharing a book each Monday, we are hoping to share a Winter or Christmas book for each Monday of December. Hopefully that will remind us to post about a book in 2010 too.

So our book for today is The Winter Garden by Ruth Brown.

"A magical book, introducing the visitors to a garden at night. As it is winter, the snow on the ground records which creatures came, and where they went."

In the moonlight we see an Owl in the Tree at the bottom of the garden; the Tree sheltered a fox, who chased a rat, which hid from the cat, who watched the birds eating seeds on the ground. The footprints are discovered by a young child the next day, so they know what animals came to visit the garden whilst they were sleeping.

Another lovely little book by Ruth Brown who also wrote "Ten Seeds" (amongst other books) which is another favourite here.

Hope you enjoy this book as much as we have enjoyed sharing it with you on this Winter day.

Take a look at Canadian Home Learning for more book sharing or to join in.
