Loving Literature: Snow Books

To go along with our snow sensory bin and our snowy snowman craft, we've been reading a lot of books about winter and snow.



We've been enjoying all the stories in Jan Brett's Snowy Treasury. It contains some of her "snowy" best stories, The Gingerbread Baby, The Mitten, The Hat, and The Three Snow Bears. If I'm not reading the stories, Lizzie is thumbing through the book enjoying the pictures.




Snow by Uri Shulevitz is a beautifully illustrated book about a snowy day that starts our one snow flake at a time. It's lyrical and calm and a perfect book to illustrate the peacefulness of a snowy day.



We've been reading a lot of Cynthia Rylant books lately, and Snow is fast becoming another favorite. It's the perfect book to curl up with on a snowy day. What do you like to do in the snow? Playing, exploring, or curling up inside and staying warm. Cynthia Rylant will take you through the perfection of a snowy day.

These are some of the snow books we've been enjoying lately. Do you have a favorite book about snow?
