One Night in Winter

What could be better during wintertime than to read stories and sing songs? This is just what Esther Kinsky thought, and she created the fitting book accompanied by a CD. The story is about three cats roaming about a cold grey city during wintertime, peering into windows ablaze with light and watching people prepare for the three Festivals of Lights: Indian Diwali, Jewish Chanukkah and Christmas.

Behind every window something takes place, that breathes the spirit of the festive season … The three cats admire the glittering lights, take in the fragrances of delicious food and listen to festive tunes.

Young illustrator Sarah Fricke created cheerful pictures flanking the story, in which many lights warm up the winter gloom.

The Book includes a CD that contents the story One Night in Winter read by the author (24:45) and the following songs:

  • Laxmi Dhyan 01:58
  • Ya Hamaam 06:01
  • Maoz Tsur 00:58
  • Ner-Li-adlik 00:56
  • Knecht Ruprecht (Schumann) 01:54
  • One Night in Winter 02:02
  • A Spotless Rose is growing 00:47
  • Ikh bin a Kleyner Dreydl 00:49
  • Twinkle twinkle little Star 00:30
  • Barnens Julafton 01:07
