The Shortest Day

This is the darkest night of the year, when the sun sets early and the turning of the earth continues.  I found this book to be a good, simple description of the Winter Solstice- how it was celebrated around the world and ways you can discover it for yourself.  We haven't tried any yet but we'll probably record our shadows next year.
