A frigid start to a new year

The Christmas promotional for WendyLynn & Co. was based on "Walking in a Winter Wonderland," but at the time we began it we had no idea of the deep freeze most of the country was about to experience. The children are making the best of the situation, as are we all as we wait for the first hints of green.

Speaking of green....
When spring does come, a new nonfiction retelling of the life of St. Patrick will be into the hands of young readers. The Puzzles of St. Patrick: From Slave to Saint, by Ellen Cook Nibali (Fairland Books, 2014) follows her book on the life of St. Nicholas. The story is taken from St. Patrick's own writings, and the illustrations follow him from the depths of slavery to the final realization of his mission and purpose.
