My fondest memories of raising little souls revolved around snuggling and reading on cold winter days. Whether a quick read under an afghan in the middle of the day or an extended time of reading before bed, my kids all remember these special times.
Winter is upon us. Have you already gone to the indoor playland this week and can’t line up a playdate? Grab a stack of books for a snowy day and cuddle up and enjoy.
The Snowy Day
Children ages 2 and up will enjoy this story of a boy enjoying a fresh snowfall. This is a lovely classic your child will love!
A boy loses his white mitten in the snow and it becomes a cozy shelter for a collection of animals. Gentle storytelling and gorgeous illustration make this story a winner for ages 1 – 3, or older! At www.JanBrett.com, the author offers tons of coloring and activity pages to accompany all her books.
Fans of Eric Carle’s Very Hungry Caterpillar or The Very Quiet Cricket will thrill to this story of a farmer awakening to a snowy day full of surprises!
Beautiful artwork and lyrical text highlight this simple story of a girl and her pa taking a night walk to look for owls.
