Five of the best subzero books

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top books on very cold places:
The Long Winter
by Laura Ingalls Wilder

Amid howling winds, freezing temperatures, and blizzard after brutal blizzard, the Little House family -- hunkered down in one room with dwindling supplies of food and fuel -- persevere with a little help from Pa's fiddle, Ma's improvisational cooking, and a lot of hope. Ages 8 and up, and perfect for a family read-aloud.
Read about another entry on the list.

The Long Winter is among Whitney Collins' five top books for whiny kids.
