We got some snow before and after Christmas, but so far January has been rather without it. We can always enjoy the snow in picture books though, right? So here are a bunch of books to help you celebrate snow, even if you lack the real stuff. Plus I’ve got books here about community in winter, finding light in dark nights, MLK Jr. Day, and Resolutions/Goals/Dreams for the New Year.
This last one shown below is actually a chapter book, but it does have a few pictures interspersed within. It’s a delightful story of a family that has an annual tradition of making their own ice skating pond. What a beautiful story of family and friends gathering in the winter to enjoy skating. This is one of my favorite books I remember reading aloud years ago to my older kiddos during dark wintry nights while they cleaned up the kitchen after dinner. It’s time to read this aloud to the younger ones!
