It's almost January and that means we are going to be discussing all the things of winter this month. As well as trying to get outside as often as we can to enjoy all the changes in our yard since fall.
In our family, we love to read and so we will be intentionally reading books about winter, snow, snowmen, snowflakes, etc that we can get our hands on. Here is a list of books that we are reading in our home and a list of books that we will also be getting from the library if we can find them. If we cannot get them from the library and I can find them at an inexpensive price I will grab them on Amazon or Half Price Book Store.

First up, is one of my favorites. All Year Round. It is simple, but explains the days, weeks and months of the calendar. When they talk about the months they mention what kind of weather you experience during the month and/or special highlights for the month.
Next up is a cute story from the Little Critter book series. Just A Snowman. It is a cute story of a snow day for Little Critter and his goal to build a snowman, but interruptions keep coming his way and foiling his plan.
I'm a Snowplow is a cute little story telling you all about his job and how he helps others get to where they need to be. It seems to be hard to find, but you can get it on Amazon either used or on your kindle if you have one.
Molly Mouse wants to build a snowman. The Best Snowman Ever follows Molly Mouse and her friends as they attempt to build a snowman and find that they have to be creative to get it done.
Sleep, Big Bear, Sleep is in my top five of books to read for the winter. Because the nights are long and sometimes cold Joe doesn't sleep as long because he doesn't get as much fresh air and doesn't move his body as much. I will sometimes tease him when he wakes up very early in the morning and say "sleep, big bear, sleep". lol
This story follows a bear who should be getting read for hibernation. Nature tries to tell him to go to sleep, but he doesn't hear correctly each time and it gets to be pretty comical some of the trouble he gets himself in to.
Goodbye Autumn, Hello Winter is a part of a series that we own. All the books have beautiful artwork and cover saying goodbye to one season and welcoming a new season in.
Follow a little girl and her father as they ski through the forest and discuss the things they see or know is over and under the snow. Over and Under The Snow is another book that is part of a series that I use often for seasons or when discussing nature.
Snowy Places is a peek inside book from Usbourne. Joe is six years old and still loves these types of books. This book talks about animals primarily in the Arctic or colder areas and some of the things that happen to them as the weather changes such as losing or growing fur, fur turns white to camouflage them, etc.
Another Usbourne book that we own is one of the books from the "Very First Questions and Answers" series. What Is Snow? is a pretty amazing book. It is small, a quick read, yet packed filled with information. It answers questions like
What is snow?
Where is snow made of?
What can you do with snow?
Where does snow go when it gets warm?
I highly recommend it.
Pop-up Seasons is another book that Joe loves because the pictures pop up. Again, this is a shorter book, but is packed with so much information about the different seasons and what you see and feel during each of them.
Secrets of Winter is a book from the Shine-A-Light book series from Kane Miller. We love all of the books in this series and own almost all of them just because they are fact filled and fun to read.
