Winter has finally arrived, which means snow, hot chocolate, and holiday cheer. So grab your kids and hunker down under a warm blanket as you enjoy UGI’s December Little Reader Pick: The First Day of Winter, written and illustrated by Denise Fleming.
This is a light-hearted tale about a young boy who receives 10 gifts for the first 10 days of winter, all so he can build the perfect snowman. The beautiful illustrations and fun “sing-song” words will motivate any child to go out and build a snowman.
At UGI Utilities, we are deeply committed to children’s literacy. Studies have shown that children who are not reading at grade level by third grade will experience significant difficulties throughout their lives. Today’s students will be tomorrow’s business and government leaders, employees and customers.
