The Check It Out series highlights the most popular texts on LightSail, around a specific monthly theme or topic, based on our user data. Every month we’ll share which books LightSail readers can’t stop checking out. These insights help us curate book lists for our schools that we know will keep students engaged and growing.
Part of what makes the winter holidays so special is the dramatic transformation the earth undergoes. The snow blanketing the ground, the trees standing bare against cool starry nights, and the animals huddled in their nests and dens impart a sense of magic and comfort as one year closes and the next begins.
Our LightSail readers are taking note of this transformative time, and are devouring books about winter and the natural world. From books about Christmas trees to stories of the glacial caves of Alaska, our readers are enthralled by the dazzling drama of winter.
