Cover of "Winter's Gifts" by Kaitlin B. Curtice

Dani, an indigenous girl, finds wonder in the resting and waiting that winter teaches us, and shares with her friends how Creator's gift of gratitude can transform the way we see the world. (Ages 4-8)

Your thankfulness is your gift to Earth.

Winter's Gifts is the tale of a young Potawatomi girl named Dani whose family celebrates the darkest season of the year by treasuring the slowness that winter brings. Dani's schoolmates think it's silly to think that Earth gives us presents, but on a magical snowy day, her family and Creator give Dani the courage to teach her friends about the gifts of winter--resting, remembrance, and gratitude. Can Dani help them receive winter's gifts?

Winter's Gifts is a joyful and tender family story of honoring creation, the power of storytelling, and how a new perspective can transform us.
