The Wonderful Gifts of Winter by Dandi Daley Mackall and illustrations by Katherine Blackmore

I LOVE Christmas books! What a wonderful way to snuggle in with our little ones and enjoy some cuddle time together. This book makes for a great start to being grateful during this winter season. Not only is the story precious and fun, but our children are introduced to scripture. 

The illustrations are bright and fun. Even though it may be cold out this book is an invitation to a loving warmth of our God who gives us each and every season to enjoy. 

"God created everything-
Summer, autumn, winter, spring.
See what winter blessings bring...
Thank You, God, for winter."

I'm a winter loving girl, so this is perfect for me to share with my grandchildren. It invites children to experience winter. To see all the wonders of winter as treasures from God. 

This is one for all ages to love. In the back of the book there are a few ideas that you can share with your children. Like making a snow mobile. This is one that is certainly fun!

I encourage you to check out, "The Super Gifts of Spring", and more to come by Dandi Daley Mackall. 

This children's book is a gift from B&H Publishing Group for sharing my review with you.

Dandi Daley Mackall always wanted to be a writer, even before she could hold a pencil.  Her parents were great storytellers, so bringing characters to life seemed as natural as riding horses bareback, which she also grew up doing.  She won her first writing contest as a 10-year-old tomboy.  Today, she has over 400 children’s books published and has won numerous awards for her writing.


Katherine Blackmore was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. With a BFA in Illustration from the Cleveland Institute of Art, Katherine has been a professional artist for 20 years. She moved to Florida in 1995 to learn traditional animation at The Walt Disney Feature Animation Studio. Today, she resides in Edgewood, Florida, with her husband, Eric, and their 3 cats.
