Reading in the winter means sharing more than a good book.


It is a good time to share a cup of cocoa and a smile.


For younger readers, try some of these suggestions.  These are all in our collection: 





The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. Depicts a young boy Peter’s adventures in the snow with simple, graphic illustrations. The Snowy Day conveys the joy of playing in the snow. Ages 1+



Snow by Uri Shulevitz. Describes a young boy’s anticipation while waiting for the first snow and revelry when the snow comes. Snow is the book to reach for to celebrate the first snow of the season. Ages 2+
