I love this book because it's so true!. In the midst of summer, the thought of changing seasons and cold, wet New England weather is depressing. But once the snow and ice gets here, it a new wonderland!

A wonderful book that sends a much needed message of understanding. The ambiguity of the stranger allows it to speak to anyone. The bright beautiful illustrations set against a simple backdrop cast the story anywhere. And the hopeful ending with its honesty and forgiveness is a lesson for us all.
