As a person of small stature, I’m for celebrating all things short—including the shortest day of the year. And here’s the book to do it. The Shortest Day (Candlewick), by Newbery winner Susan Cooper and Caldecott Honor winner Carson Ellis, takes Cooper’s classic poem about the shortest day (this year, December 21 for the northern hemisphere) and turns it into a magical picture book celebrating endings and beginnings.
Here’s how you can win: Submit a comment to this blog by Thursday, January 2, 2020, and share one short thing you like. Short stack of pancakes? Strawberry shortcake? Short lines at the grocery store? Short days at school? Short to-do list? Short answers to questions? You name it! One lucky teacher will be randomly selected to win. Congratulations to our lucky winner Lori Blevins!
