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 I reach for to celebrate the first snow of the season. Ages 2+





Owl Moon by Jane Yolen. I absolutely love this story about a girl and her father venturing out into the woods on a winter night in search of an owl. Owl Moon describes a memorable wintertime nature encounter. Ages 3+





The Snowman by Raymond Briggs. Without words, The Snowman tells the tale of a boy who imagines playing – and flying – with the snowman he has created. Ages 4+







Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin and Mary Azarian. A true story about a man, William Bentley, who figured out how to photograph snowflakes in the late-1800s. Ages 5+
