Despite the name, it can be read any time of the year and would be a great book to read with your kids, probably starting around age eight.

Full Disclosure: I received this book to review from Alan Squire Publishing, but everything in this review is my own opinion.
Time of Year to Read: Winter and Christmas of course, but really, any time of year would be great, with a partial preference for colder months.
