What We’re Reading: Books About Winter

I’m not sure that there is a better way to hide away from the winter cold than to curl up with a good book…or ten! It’s no lie that I am a book lover. I’m proud to say that I’m raising three little book lovers too. Just one more… That’s what I hear at bedtime every night. Most of the time I oblige.

Right now we’re reading books about winter, it’s beauty, and it’s magic!

Secrets of Winter

Books About Winter

I am a huge Usborne Books and More fan. I am, after all, a consultant. The first time I was introduced to their Shine-a-Light books I was hooked…and so were the kids. The Secrets of Winter is a visually fascinating book. It also teaches children facts about the animals and the winter world they inhabit.

Who is out and about during wintertime? Shine a light behind the pages and discover a natural winter world full of surprises!
