Poppleton in Winter

on January 3, 2016

One of our family’s absolute favorite authors is Cynthia Rylant. Her wit and ease with which we relate to the story lines in her books keeps us all laughing.

Ms. Rylant is an amazing writer, with many books to her credit. She has written multiple series, with everything from toddler books to picture books to early readers to chapter books to middle grade books to poetry books. Truly there is something here for everyone.

Since I am a fan of reading “seasonally,” I find myself gravitating toward snowy, winter themed books right now. Soon, I will be searching for books on Martin Luther King, Jr. and shortly thereafter, books about Ground Hog’s Day. You get the idea.

Poppleton in Winter is one of my perennial favorites. Again, part of a series, the book is broken down into three different chapter/stories involving Poppleton, a quite amiable fellow, along with his friends Cherry Sue, Hudson and Fillmore.

Each chapter is its own story, and all involve friendship, caring for others and working together as some of the overarching themes. More about Ms. Rylant and her books can be found on her website
