Get Excited for Winter With These New Children’s Books

Winter is on its way: You better get used to the idea. We’ll pull out our winter boots and coats, trudge into the snow on our way, and sip hot cocoa when our fingers are too chilly. There’s nothing like coming home after a long, cold day and curling up with a good book. These new children’s books are perfect for ushering in the cold weather, the holidays, and cozying up with little reader. 

1) The Wish Tree by Kyo Maclear


Does the Wish Tree exist? Charles thinks it does, but his brother and sister don’t. He’ll prove them wrong! 


2) Over and Under the Snow by Kate Messner 


We all know that the snow is white and fluffy, but what lies beneath? It’s too chilly in the winter; a wonderful world of squirrels, snow hares, and even bears are hybernating and Messner brings them to life.  


3) Flora and the Penguin by Molly Idle


Flora has mastered ballet. She set up a new challange for herself, taking on the ice with her penguin friend. This one’s all about working together and the power of teamwork.  


4) Bunny Slopes by Claudia Rueda 


This interactive book allows you to shake, tilt, and turn Bunny to help him down the bunny slope. He needs your help!
