January to me should always mean snow. Since we aren’t likely to get it living in Florida (although it was cold enough for it this week!), we choose to read books about it. My favorite snowy book has always been The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. The story is timeless, about a child’s experience with snow. This year I was thrilled to discover a copy at our library book sale, and we are happily enjoying it on our permanent bookshelf.from The Snowy Day
This year we have found a few new books to add to our winter/snowy reading list.
Here Comes Jack Frost by Kazuno Kohara: a sweet story about a young boy and his mischievous adventures in the snow (with a friend). The illustrations are great! We love the other book by this author, Ghosts in the House, and this one is a new favorite.
The Lonesome Polar Bear by Jane Cabrera: cute illustrations and a nice message.
