The Shortest Day.
So the shortest day came,
and the year died . . .
Susan Cooper’s poem “The Shortest Day” captures the magic behind the returning of the light, the yearning for traditions that connect us with generations that have gone before, and the hope for peace that we carry into the future. Richly illustrated by Carson Ellis with a universality that spans centuries, this beautiful book evokes the joy and community found in the ongoing mystery of life when we celebrate light, thankfulness, and festivity at a time of rebirth. Welcome Yule!
A wonderful gift for anyone on your list.
