Winter Is Here. Bring on the Books

Perhaps Winter wasn’t getting enough attention and retaliated. So while much of the East coast digs out from an avalanche of snow, I’m thankful for living in a snow belt area that did not get snow (this time). And I’m very thankful for living in an area that owns snowplows and salt/ sand trucks.

So find a cozy spot to snuggle with your little ones and read a stack of winter picture books.

Of course, you’ll have to take a hot cocoa break and while you dip graham crackers into your hot cocoa, let the conversations flow.

“Are all snowmen (snow people) made with three snowballs?”
“Do snowmen get cold?”
“Why do some have mittens or a scarf or a hat?”
“Do snow people get hungry?”
“What would they eat? Ice cream? Icicles?”

At story time, the children created a snowman who loves listening to stories. And he doesn’t leave puddles on the floor.

 His favorite picture book is Snowballs by Lois Ehlert.
  We made more snow people. The best part is … no frigid freezing fingers.
