Shortest Day


Author: Susan Cooper

Illustrator: Carson Ellis

When the sun sets on the winter solstice, the year comes to a close. But don’t be afraid of this shortest day. Light candles, sing songs, and keep the fire burning through the night. For when the sun rises, the year begins anew.

With magnificent illustrations set to Susan Cooper’s iconic poem, celebrate the Yuletide season and the traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation. Your young readers will marvel as they discover that some of their favorite holiday traditions — like caroling and lighting the Christmas tree — have passed down through the ages.
