I’m reposting this because even though we haven’t had much of a winter this year, it is still fun to read about winter.
It’s winter and soon we’ll be covered in snow day to day and kids love winter activities! After playing in the snow, curl up with a cup of hot cocoa and a blanket and read these to your little one:
The Snow Ball by David Steinberg
I always lean toward books with animals when searching for resources for little ones;
children relate to animals and there is no fear of them feeling like an outsider because
the character depicted is not of the same color.
Here’s a peek inside the book:
“Bears go flopping on the ice for a ride,
Balumping on their bellies, going slipidee-sleeeeeede!
Next skit-skat-skadoodle up to icicle Hall
Where little bears gather for a Snow Day ball!”
Another fun reading choice for a post sledding activity is
There was a Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow by Lucille Colandro
“There was a cold lady who swallowed some snow.
I don’t know why she swallowed some snow.
Perhaps you know.”
Since the rhyme is familiar, children will easily be able to help read along.
I wish this series did a better job depicting people of other colors, however,
It’s funny and gross at the same time, which kids love!
I give these two books for the younger set 3 paws.
