#12 The Long Winter Begins

by Jolene Philo & Anne Fleck | Home Again

This episode is named after Laura Ingalls Wilder’s book The Long Winter. We highly recommend the entire series for reading aloud to kids, though winter is not the time to read The Long Winter. Save it for when the weather improves.

Anne also mentioned The Enchanted Chronicles, Dealing with Dragons series as a good winter read aloud.

Jolene and Anne recommend these products for combatting depression when the long winter begins:

Finally, here’s a list of DVDs that make us happy in winter:

  • Parks and Recreation
  • 30 Rock
  • Longmire (rather dark)
  • Gilmore Girls
  • Parenthood (Anne thinks this one is too emotional)
  • Psych
  • Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries
  • Father Brown
  • Pushing Daisies
  • The Mary Tyler Moore Show
  • The Dick Van Dyke Show
