our favorite winter reads

We'd been waiting for a really big snow, saving good stuff in a sack.  Finally it was a perfect snowball day.  

- Lois Ehlert (from Snowballs)

Here are a few of our favorite books to snuggle up with on a snowy afternoon.  With the exception of the talking animals in Stranger in the Woods, all of these books are based in reality.  Which is just right for 2.5 year-old Elise - too much fantasy leaves her confused and concerned!

  • Owl Moon by Jane Yolen
  • Snowballs by Lois Ehlert
  • In the Snow: Who's Been Here? by Lindsay Barrett George
  • Stranger in the Woods by Carl R. Sams II & Jean Stoick
  • The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats
  • What Can You Do in the Snow? by Anna Grossnickle Hines

What do you plan on reading this weekend?  


  1. Nice to "read" from you Anne! Thank you for some great suggestions. Hope all is well with you and miss E. Deb

    1. Hi Deb! Elise and I are doing well - I'm hoping to start sharing more of what we've again... How have you and your lovely little ladies been? I think of you often!! xx. Anne
