Just wanted to share a few books we are reading right now to get us ready for colder temps and lots of snow. Because eventually the 40s and 50s that we are having will go away and the snow will start to fall!
Snow Rabbit, Spring Rabbit: A Book of Changing Seasons, Il Sung Na
This adorable book is all about how animals prepare and handle the cold temps and outside changes that happen in winter. A little rabbit is shown moving through scenes (that it would never be in, like sitting on top of an alligator!) to show all kinds of animals. The little rabbit then changes colors at the end to show how he handles the changes of the seasons. Very great book to start learning and talking about what animals are doing during the cold season.
Winter Is, by Ann Dixon
The descriptions in this book tell all the contradictory feelings and thoughts that people can have about winter. The darkness of shorter day and the brightness of fires and the northern lights. The cold temps and the warmth you feel while going up and down hills as you sled. Winter is white because of the snow but black because of the dark night skies. The book paints a beautiful and descriptive picture of winter.
Snip, Snip, Snow, by Nancy Poydar
Sometimes kids need help to get excited about playing in the snow, this book is perfect for that. The little girl is so excited about snow but it just won't come. The book talks all about the fun things that can happen in the snow. There is also great snowflake making at her school and even a how-to guide at the back for making paper snowflakes!
What are you reading right now? Do you read books that go with the seasons?
