Toasty Reads for Chilly Nights

child reading with teddy bearUnlike any other season, there is a coziness about this time of year that naturally draws us together. British poet, Edith Sitwell put it this way: “Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”

It follows suit that cold winter nights are the perfect time for reading, especially when you have small children. Every child knows, when old man winter comes to call, nothing’s better than a parent’s lap, a warm snuggle and a good book. And keep in mind, “Children are made readers on the laps of their parents,” according to author Emilie Buchwald.

When the temperatures drop, pull up a comfy chair, gather your young ones around you and settle in for a relaxing evening. Overall, cherish these precious moments, because they will be gone in a blink of an eye.

Here are just a few of the toasty reads for chilly nights that we offer at DBRL.
