When it is snow falling outside, they can bundle up under a knit blanket and read books. You would be surprised to know that many authors have been inspired by the icy weather and have crafted books that fit perfectly with the season. 

If you are planning to buy some winter-themed books for your kids this year, then you can consider the titles mentioned below. Daycare teachers have shared a curated list of winter-themed picture books, that your kids would love to read during the winter months.

This is a very famous winter picture book. Kids love reading this book as in the story the main character Peter headed out into the snow and play different winter games. He plays all the classic winter games from snowball fights to making footprints on the snow to creating snow angels. Most of the kids love the part when he wants to save a snowball for later and puts that in his pocket.

Snow by Sam Usher – 

This is a four-book series that is widely available in Cypress CA playschools. The books are about a young boy Samand his grandfather. They go out together in each season and have wonderful adventures. Kids find the grandfather very funny as he takes forever to get ready. This book shows Sam getting very anxious as his grandfather is taking a long time to get ready and it seems everyone is already out to play in the snow.

Blizzard by John Rocco – 

This book has brilliant illustrations and has a great visual appeal to its readers. While reading, young readers start imagining themselves in the blizzard itself. They love reading this book especially because the book is based on the author’s personal experience as a kid during a blizzard. 

Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin and illustrated by Mary Azarian – 

This book is nonfiction and introduces Wilson Bentley. He used to love snowflakes from a very young age and spent years figuring out the ways to photograph snowflakes properly. In the process, he discovered that two snowflakes are not the same. He was so fascinated by the snowflakes that his name became Snowflake Bentley.

Bunny Slopes by Claudia Rueda – 

Kids love reading interactive books and this book is quite popular amongst Daycare teachers. In the story, Bunny is ready to ski, but the book is so horizontal that he can not ski. So, can your kids tip it a bit so that he can catch some speed? But please be careful about the bumps and holes too! Kids need to shake, tilt, turn the book to help Bunny ski down the slope. 

Red Sled by Lita Judge –

This is an awesome picture book for young readers who have not yet started reading properly. The book shows a group of animals who find a sled leaning against a house and they decide to go on a ride in the sled.
