amazon first reads, November 2022

Bright Winter Night was November's pick for Children's Picture Book of the month! 


goodreads giveaway, november 2022

Goodreads hosted a giveaway of Bright Winter Night (ended Nov. 30, 2022).



"Text and art gracefully advance two themes—cooperation toward a goal and appreciation of nature’s magic—while also lulling restless readers toward naptime or bedtime. Destined to be a favorite bedtime read-aloud."

BRIGHT WINTER NIGHT in Publisher's Weekly

“Awash in shades of purple, blue, and pink, [Ashling] Lindsay’s watercolor and digital artwork project the magic evoked by Brydon’s smooth rhymes, illuminating a magnetic portrait of woodland camaraderie.” 

BRIGHT WINTER NIGHT in School Library Journal

“This winter tale would work well for dusky afternoon story hours in December or a bedtime story; the muted illustrations and the text, which has a perfect scan and beat, begin energetically but slow to soothing, steady levels as the animals settle down to sleep.”

LOBSTAH GAHDEN in School Library Journal

"A good read-aloud conservation story sure to entertain students dipping their toes into aquatic environmentalism."
