I remember as a child coming in from an afternoon of wintery-fun; bundling in front of the fireplace until my feet and face thawed.
In the Warmest Place of All, little Sophie searches for her very own place to warm up after playing out in the snow.
Will it be in the kitchen with a cup of steaming hot cocoa or the bathtub with hot water and bubbles? Perhaps, cuddling with her big dog, Baby Bear will do the trick? But none of these feel right and Sophie soon finds out where the warmest place of all is.
Author Licia Rando M.Ed. reminds us that, “Even the simple act of holding hands releases Oxytocin, which decreases blood pressure and acts as a sedative. Imagine what a snuggle with a parent and a good book will do for a child.”
