Mr. Winter is very cold, but his spirit is very warm. He is cold because it is his duty to bring winter to the schoolyards in the fall season, his spirit warm because he loves watching over the children playing in the soft snow, kind of like an angel. Every year during the cold months, he travels from schoolyard to schoolyard, bringing the joys of winter fun for the children to experience.
The schoolyards might have a snow hill for sledding, a frozen pond for ice skating, a mountain for skiing, open land for dogsledding, views of the northern lights at night, and a frozen lake for ice fishing. In each experience, Mr. Winter loves watching over the children playing in the schoolyards at recess time and then running back to their classrooms so that learning can continue. Staritng in April, Mr. Winter goes on vacation to California, where he visits a warm beach, a scuba shack on an island, a beach with sea glass washed up on shore, and a whale watching tour with the children. Then it’s time for his winter duties to begin all over again.
This children’s story follows the spirit of winter as he brings winter excitement to schoolyards in the cold months and enjoys a relaxing vacation in California when his work is done.
