“White snowy Angels with wide sweeping wings — Let’s find the wonders that God’s winter brings.” Children explore the delights of winter from A to Z in this charming book that celebrates the season’s blessings: from the sparkle of lights to the warmth of a quilt and the scent of fresh-baked cookies. As children review the alphabet, they discover the joy and beauty of wintertime, whether revealed in the bustle of the holidays or the quiet of a snowy walk. S is for Snowman is the latest installment in Ms. Wargin’s alphabet-centered picture book series that includes K is for Kite, F is for Fireflies, and P is for Pumpkin.
