5 Books To Get You Through A Long Winter

November 12, 2015

by Essex Children’s Librarian Heather Delouchry

1. Big Stone Gap by Adriana Trigiani.
It’s always better to read the book before the movie comes out!

2 and 3. Looking for Alaska by John Greene (or any other book by John Greene) and I Will Always Write Back by Caitlin Alifirenka and Martin Ganda.
Why not read what the teens are reading these days? Good to be in touch with kids!

4. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling.
Who doesn’t want to escape reality sometimes? These books never get old and are good even on the second or third time.

5. The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg.
A 1986 Caldecott Medal Winner that keeps the holiday spirit alive! Always better with a child, pajamas, and hot chocolate.
