Reading is fun EVERYWHERE!

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow! Classic Snow Books

Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

With the weather so cold and frosty all across the United States (even here in normally warm and sunny Florida), I thought it was the right time to share a few Classic children's books about Snow and Winter.

The first few books have been around for quite some time and have become the go-to books for many librarians and teachers at this time of year. Each book has its own unique perspective of snow.

Snow can be calm and quieting. Or it can be playful and exciting.

Choosing a variety of children's books to share with your child can help you introduce the varied characteristics of snow through the viewpoints of different characters as they enjoy vastly different adventures in the cold and the snow. 

I hope you will be able to find some time to curl up under a warm blanket and share a few snowy adventures with your child.
