Kids Corner: A Winter Solstice Celebration by DiDi LeMay

Synopsis of A Winter Solstice Celebration from the authors website ā€“ A Winter Solstice Celebrationā€ helps children and adults alike to understand how the animals feel about their planet, how humans can help and how and how humans and animals can live together in harmony. A Winter Solstice is warm story that relates to all who read it.

A Winter Solstice Celebration takes young readers deep into the forest, where they discover how seemingly harmless human activities can wreak havoc on the natural world.

About Didi LeMay: Didi lives in Toronto with her husband and her cat.  She has been involved in many aspects of children's entertainment for years.  She is currently busy writing and teaching English as a second language.  

My thoughts:  As a parent one of the things that I strive to do is to teach my little monkey about respect.  Not only respect for other people, but for the environment as well.  I'm very proud of the fact that at his young age he is already familiar with the concept.  

Some of the concepts that can be found in children's literature surprise me.  When I was presented with with a book that aims at teaching children about animals and the environment I was immediately interested.  This book was a little too advanced for my monkey as he quickly lost interest in the story.  It would certainly be appropriate for an older child.  

This story is full of imagination and is beautifully illustrated.   The animals are able to talk to Miya who tells the other villagers about the animals plight and how human actions affect them.  The animals and humans are able to come together for the celebration and work toward a common goal. 

This story is a great springboard for a conversation about the environment.  This would make a great gift for a younger reader.  

My copy of A Winter Solstice Celebration was provided by the author for participation in her blog tour.  Receipt of the book did not affect my opinion of the story and illustrations.
