Wynstones Press Winter is a compilation of winter stories, poems, games, songs, plays, music and festivals for kids that is such a fun book that any parent or teacher of young children should add to their collection. 

One of Wynstones’ six books compiled for parents, homeschoolers and professional educators to use working with young children, Winter contains a variety of many, many types of “stories” for the winter season that will engage and delight your children.

First published more than twenty years ago, these high-demand books are in their third edition, now reedited and with much new material added. In addition, the music has been comprehensively edited, with most songs now in the scale of D-pentatonic, which is particularly suited to pentatonic lyres and may be played on any traditional seven-note or twelve-note instrument. Each volume includes an enlightening introduction by Jennifer Aulie on music in the "mood of the fifth."

The covers are illustrated in watercolors by David Newbatt, with the four seasonal titles each depicting a different worker. 

Winter contains at least 52 poems, 30 songs, 10 beloved tales, games, a Nativity Play and music...all about the elements of the Winter Season from the British, Irish, Scottish and Welsh traditions.
