Adorable. What a lucky child, to be able to have such a lovely attitude. I'm allergic to cats, and chocolate/ cocoa gives me migraines, and this house costs too much money to heat - but I still love this book so much it did help me stop shivering for a little while! ( )

In my opinion, this is an average book. I liked the illustrations in the book as they are very vibrant and truly enhance the story in making the reader feel warm. The illustrations fit well with the text as the story discusses things to do in the winter to keep you warm. I think that the language and writing is very simple and would be good for K-2nd graders as each page only includes a sentence or two. The big idea of the story is somewhat average or unimportant as it discusses the different types of foods and drinks you can make in the winter in order to stay warm. ( )

Dark, dreamy illustrations accompany text about why winter really is the warmest season - we wear warm clothes, drink warm drinks, eat warm food, sit by warm fires, tuck under warm blankets. A cozy book for a cold day. ( )

"Winter is the warmest season," begins this delightfully poetic picture-book celebration of a time of year that many would consider chilly, demonstrating that it's all about perspective. It may be snowy outside, and the temperature may be dropping low, but the young narrator of Lauren Stringer's book reflects with joy on the warmth of his own experiences - the downy coat and fuzzy boots he wears; the delicious soup and hot chocolate he consumes; the coziness of cuddling with the family cats, and sleeping under heavy blankets; and the steamy, dragon-like exhalations of the radiators - providing copious support for his claim that "My world is warmest in winter."

With a simple narrative that emphasizes simple pleasures, and charming acrylic illustrations that perfectly capture the young narrator's joy and contentment - not to mention the titular warmth he is extolling - Winter Is the Warmest Season was a joy to read! I appreciated the fact that, without ever losing her sense of fun, or descending into any sort of didacticism, Lauren Stringer managed to highlight the idea that the same circumstances can look radically different (even diametrically opposed), when seen from a different perspective. Highly recommended to young readers who love Winter, to those who hate Winter (and need a little comfort), and to anyone who appreciates beautiful picture-book art. I'm glad that, despite having missed this one back in December, when it was one of our Picture-Book Club selections, that I decided to read it after all. It was well worth the effort required to track it down! ( )

Great for a writing lesson on weather. Argues that winter is the warmest season of all.
