When each family at the diverse Juniper Court apartment complex needs something to light up the dark of winter, the stumpy, lumpy candle provides a glow brighter than the fanciest taper, revealing the true spirit of each holiday it illuminates.

This adorable book is perfect to read out-loud on a cold winter night. The images are absolutely stunning and bring this story to life. Stacey Schuett’s graphics are absolutely amazing, they convey such warmth and provide an overwhelming sense of both hope and comfort.

This story sends out a strong message: despite our differences, we are all truly the same. This book opens up an opportunity for families to discuss how others are different, and yet exactly the same.

Winter Candle is the story of a one-building neighbourhood where the neighbours are united with their need for a light in the winter darkness. Specifically, they need a candle. A single candle is shared for a Thanksgiving meal, Sabbath, St.Lucia’s Day and other Winter Celebrations.

I love books like this because they open up an opportunity to discuss how families are different and yet the same. This sends a great message to the next generation, in teaching not to judge others by their ‘differences’ which may not be so ‘different’ after all.
