Book Club: Winter Holiday


Winter Holiday, from the Swallows and Amazons series, might be one of the most perfect books ever. Three families of kids and their winter outdoor adventures, pretending that their winter in England's Lake District is an arctic adventure, full of courage, drama, miscommunication, and celebration. We had fun with it too, doing art that represented winter reflection scenes on a lake, drawing the night sky, organizing an explorer's larder, and making notebooks for scientific observations (like the kids in the book). Fun, fun.
