MN Reads: "On the Shortest Day" Laura Sulentich Fredrickson and illustrated by Laurie Caple

When Laura Sulentich Frederickson was a little girl, she felt sorry for her dad's birthday being so close to the winter solstice.

After all, kids had to be in before dark, so he couldn't have gotten much time to play outside with his friends on his birthday.

Maybe we haven't always needed the return of the light quite the way we do here in 2020, but Frederickson has written a beautiful book to share and read to celebrate the shortest day of the year ... and the longer days sure to follow.

On the Shortest Day by Laura Sulentich Fredrickson and illustrated by Laurie Caple is published by the Minnesota Historical Society Press.
