The snow is here and Winter Solstice is just around the bend. While we are spending hours on end outside in the snow, our evenings are spent curled together under a cozy quilt with a stack of books. What is in our seasonal book basket?
It's Snowing! by Oliver Dunrea
A gift from a friend when Sage was two, this baby-wearing mama trundles out into the snow to enjoy a dark evening with her baby. So sweet.
Winter by Gerda Mueller
Gerda Mueller's season books are, hands down, my favorite children's books. They contain no words, just illustrations of life in each season.
Snipp, Snapp, Snurr and the Yellow Sled by Maj Lindman
Old fashioned, sweet, stories.
Thought I tire of the all male animal cast in The Mitten, with a little creative editing (insert "she" every other animal) this book is super sweet. Wild Christmas Reindeer has captivating illustrations.
Antler, Bear, Canoe – A Northwoods Alphabet Year by Betsy Brown
I LOVE Betsy Brown. She's from Ely, MN and her woodblocks are perfect.
The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree by Gloria Houston
A touching story of a mother's unwavering strength.
Marven of the Great Northwoods by Kathryn Lasky
Another wintery tale from the vast North.
A vintage edition from my childhood.
Happy winter reading!
