Young readers and listeners who associate winter with cold and snow will be captivated by this cozy picture book that invites them to think about winter in new way. “My world is warmest in winter . . . my jacket puffs warm with feathers . . . my iced summer’s milk turns to hot chocolate . . . cats sit on laps instead of windowsills” and “sleeping radiators awake to their dragon selves.” The young child narrator’s quiet declaration of the many reasons why winter is the warmest season may inspire children to think of their own examples, or of the many ways summer, as the boy briefly suggests, is the coolest. Regardless, they will enjoy the soothing feel of this comforting story, which is accompanied by author/illustrator Lauren Stringer’s warm, richly hued illustrations. (Ages 3–7)
