A Winter Walk in the City

By Cathy Goldberg Fishman

Illustrated by Melanie Hall

Winter walk in the city.
What do I see?
One glowing menorah.
Two bells on a tree.

Take a walk through the city in winter and experience the sights, sounds, colors, and smells of the multitude of different holidays we celebrate this season. From Hanukkah and Christmas to Mawlid al-Nabi and Chinese New Year, everyone has a reason to celebrate. With simple rhymes, a counting pattern, and stunning papercraft art reminiscent of Ezra Jack Keats, this diverse board book is the perfect introduction to the cultural melting pot that makes the city so special.
