Winter is white. Winter is cold. Winter is dark. Winter is bright. Winter is so many things, especially to a little one eagerly awaiting sledding, ice-skating, and other joys of the season. "Winter is" brings a child's anticipation of winter to life, with simple, evocative verse and delicate watercolor paintings of winter's wonders. A celebration of the many pleasures of the season, "Winter is" is a classic winter story for bedtime, or anytime a child may be dreaming of snowflakes. Each double-page illustration teams with a short poem highlighting the delights of winter: ice crystals on a window, jumping into a drift, snow angels, northern lights, dogs running, bears sleeping and holiday dreaming under a quilt.

Winter is a part of the Auracle line from Auryn. The app is based on Ann Dixon’s book by the same name, illustrated by Mindy Dwyer.

Key features include:
★ Professional narration by a 10 year old boy
★ Image and word association vocabulary builder - when an image is touched the associated word is spoken and the written word displayed.
★ Karaoke effect - when a word is spoken during narration then the word is highlighted.
★ Touch a word to hear it being spoken.

Three ways to read the book.
★ "Read to me" - Listen to the narrated story while the text is displayed Karaoke style. After the narration finishes on a page the child can interact with objects till they are ready to move to the next page.

★ "Read myself" - There is no narration but the child can touch a word to hear it being spoken aloud.

★ "Auto Play" - same as "Read to Me" except the page advances automatically once the narration is finished. Useful for those long car rides when you want the child to have a complete book experience.
