Don’t let the midwinter blues get you down! Curl up with the kids (and some hot cocoa!) and enjoy one of my favorite snowy reads.
The Three Snow Bears by Jan Brett
In Brett’s retelling of the classic tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, a young Eskimo girl looking for her missing sled dogs stumbles upon an igloo belonging to a bear family.
The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats
This story of a little boy playing and exploring in the snow has been beloved for generations. This cozy read is the perfect way to wind down and warm up after your own snowy adventures.
Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner
With rhyming text and whimsical, painterly illustrations, this story gives kids a glimpse of what their snowmen do a night. Among the snowy activities: drinking hot cocoa, ice skating, sledding, and more!
The Mitten by Jan Brett
This classic Ukrainian folk tale, adapted and illustrated by Jan Brett, was a childhood favorite of mine. When a boy loses his mitten in the snow, a mole burrows inside it to get warm. Soon he is joined by a rabbit, an owl, and a host of other animals.
