Later, I will be reading The Longest Night, written by Marion Dane Bauer and illustrated by Ted Lewin (Holiday House, 2009).
Possibly, my ten-year-old may think she's too old to listen, but she'll be wrong, and when it gets to the part with the chickadee, we'll sing together,
"And dee and dee and dee," she sings.
"And dee and dee, again."
You're never too old for a great picture book.
Happy Solstice, to you and yours!
