Happy Winter Solstice! Winter Lights: a Season in Poems and Quilts by Anna Grosnickle Hines

unpgd. HarperCollins Publishers, September, 2005. 978-0-06-00817-8. (From my own collection.) 

Winter celebrations and other natural phenomena, most of which center around light, are thoughtfully depicted in sixteen poems. What astounds about this book are the illustrations. Each one is a gorgeous quilt. Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and the feast of Santa Lucia and Chinese New Year are depicted along with the solstice, aurora borealis and a cozy fireplace. What a lovely cross-cultural acknowledgement of winter!
