Seasonal Reading: Winter Favorites

We’ve had a decent snow and Thankgiving is over so it’s officially winter. Here’s the next installment of our favorites from our seasonal reading basket. Most of them tend to be more Winter and Snow related than Christmas related. We have no religious/meaning of Christmas books in the mix, as I have trouble answering questions for my 4 year old that I can’t answer for myself. Last year we did an advent calendar with tiny little doors and small pieces of candy for the older one. We’ll do that one again and need to come up with some sort of candy that’s not terrible for the toddler too. We’ve added a new advent calendar type thing to the mix. My mom (she’s retired and crazy) knitted 24 tiny little stockings that she’s filled with Legos and Little People for the girls. Our Thanksgiving travel plans were delayed because of the snow, so we got the tree up earlier than usual. Bring on the holidays, but please hold the eggnog – that stuff is gross. What are your simple holiday traditions with your kids?

  1. Your mom showed me those stockings when I was there in Oct–she IS crazy! 🙂 Snowy Day was always one of my favorite books as a kid, even though the concept of snow was very mysterious.
