Wonderful Picture Books for Winter

Ahh…winter! There’s just so much to love—the stillness of the night after a blanket of snow has covered the ground; the crunch of snow underfoot; and curling up in front of a crackling fire with a blanket, a cup of tea, and a wonderful picture book for winter! And speaking of books, the books below will bring warmth to even the chilliest winter day!

Read the synopses of a few of my favorite picture books for winter below and then head to your local library with my library list.

Blizzard book cover

Blizzard

If you haven’t experienced a New England blizzard, you’ll experience the wonder of a big one through the eyes of a ten-year-old boy in this beautifully illustrated book.

Brave Irene book cover

Can Irene make it to the duchess’s house in time to deliver the package, or will winter win?

Geraldine's Big Snow book cover

Geraldine’s Big Snow

It’s not a restful night, but it is an exciting one!

Owl Moon book cover

Owl Moon
by Jane Yolen

There’s a full moon and it’s a perfect night for owling. You might see an owl and you might not—but either way is fine since just being there is a special treat. “When you’re owling, you don’t need words or warm, or anything but hope. That’s what Pa says. The kind of hope that flies on silent wings under a shining Owl Moon.

Red Sled book cover

The Snowy Day book cover

The Snowy Day
by Ezra Jack Keats

Ezra Jack Keats’ Caldecott Medal winner, The Snowy Day, has been a staple of winter reading for 50 years.

Twelve Kinds of Ice book cover

Twelve Kinds of Ice
by Ellen Bryan Obed

Beautiful pen-and-ink drawings illustrate Ellen Bryan Obed’s ode to Twelve Kinds of Ice. The author takes readers back to the seasons of her childhood, from autumn’s first ice—“a skim of ice so thin that it broke when we touched it” to “dream ice … the ice that came in our sleep.” It’s a not-to-be-missed treat, especially for older readers.

A Loud Winter’s Nap book cover

A Loud Winter’s Nap

The Reader
by Amy Hest

On a snowy day, a small boy and his brown dog set out on a journey with a sled and a suitcase. It’s a long trek up a steep slope in a wintry world of snowballs, snow angels, and snowflakes. But it will be well worth the trip when the boy and his dog reach the top of the hill and open the suitcase…

Bunny Slopes book cover

Debbie,
We know how overwhelming it can be to walk through a library and try to find a number of books on the same subject. Too often too many of them just aren’t great books. We hope these sorts of book lists makes finding books at least a bit easier for parents and teachers.

Nothing is better than drinking hot coco and reading to your children. All About Reading has helped me teach all of my kids to read (4 of the 5 so far). Not only did it teach them the skills to read , AAR fosters the love of reading in the student. No busy work worksheets, only fun games for the student to play. Fun engaging stories from level 1 to level 4. Thanks AAR!

Katy and the Big Snow is a favorite in my home too. It’s such a sweet classic! Hopefully you will find at least a few others to enjoy as much.

Dorinda

says:

Wonderful list. Some new and some already friends. Another great book we are reading this month Is Extra Yarn, by Mac Barnett. It isn’t winter themed exactly, but as the main character knits for everyone in her town, you can tell it’s set during cold weather. It’s a sweet little book, and my kids have been enjoying it.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Thank you for the recommendation, Dorina! I’m a knitter myself, so I’m especially interested in this book.

We don’t have winter in our country, but all these books look so lovely. My son has seen snow in tv shows and movies and he loves it. I think he’ll enjoy these too.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

That is one of the best things about books, Marianne! Being about to learn about things you can’t experience personally. Through books, my kids have enjoyed everything from equatorial rainforests to arctic tundras!

Amanda Le Breton

says:

Ahhh! Such beautiful books – they make me nostalgic of my childhood, but alas! I have lived (and teach) in Africa all my adult life, so I can’t use them. Can’t help but feel my students miss out so much with the changing seasons, though!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Amanda,
I think your students might enjoy some winter books as a way to learn about something they can’t personally experience. My own children always found books about faraway places and what goes on there very interesting.

Dauma S

says:

Great books! We are always looking for book ideas for our 4 kids. Thanks.

Jaime Benoit

says:

Thank you for sharing this list! I love Katy and the Big Snow and The Mitten! So many of these books are new to me. Thank the Lord for the option of putting books on hold at the library- with a toddler library visits are for fun and keeping all the books on the shelves “safe” from him while he learns what it is all about so there’s not much time to select books :)

Merry

says: Customer Service

You’re welcome, Jaime! Library visits can be challenging with little ones, so I’m glad the list makes it a bit easier!

Great resource list for classroom read alouds and to use with my tutoring students. Can’t wait to start sharing these books with my students!

I found “The Snowy Day” at a local thrift store for a quarter this year. It was one of the first books I’ve read to my kids that I vividly remember reading as a child! Then my sister in law bought the kids “The Mitten” for Christmas, highly recommend, the illustrations are so charming! Thanks for the great list!

Tiffani Walker

Kathy

Great suggestions! Thank you for sharing.

Kelsey

says:

Snowflake Bentley is such a wonderful book. He was an interesting man. I would never have thought to put my microscope out in a shed to keep the snowflakes from melting.

April DeBrita

says:

Thank you for these. We love AAS and AAR.

Monique Hover

says:

AAR is the best program! I started using it with my third child when I started homeschooling as my older two could already read…I’m now teaching child 5 & 6 and will continue with child 7 starting next year and child 8 when he reaches 4 or 5. I have always been pleased with this program and will forever be a customer through my future children. Side note…and yes we ALSO do AAS, couldn’t be more pleased with the outcomes. So much attention and understanding, breakdown and explanation, plus repetition and reminders. I was very excited when the app came out! ——Add books to the app for the kids as an extra exciting bonus—- Thank you All About Learning, you make homeschooling easier.

Merry

says: Customer Service

Wow, Monique, you’re welcome! So glad your children are doing so well with reading and spelling. It sounds like you are doing a great job with them too!

Abby

Thank you for this list of winter books!

Sarah

I love reading winter stories with my children. One of my favorites is called Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost. It captures the simple pleasures of a winter evening in poem form with beautiful illustrations.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Thank you for the recommendation, Sarah! I am familiar with Frost’s poem, but I didn’t know it had been put into a picture book format. I looked it up and it does look lovely.

Marie

In addition to all of the wonderful titles that have been shared I would like to include:

The Jacket I Wear in the Snow by Shirley Neitzel
50 Below Zero by Robert Munsch
Stranger in the Woods by Carl R. Sams II & Jean Stoick
It’s Winter by Linda Glaser

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

says: Customer Service

Oooo, great recommendations, Marie. Thank you.

Heather

says:

I have to add “Snow” by Roy McKie and P.D. Eastman, it’s just fun! I loved it when I was little. I’m pulling it out now for my little guys who haven’t yet experienced it:). Now if only we had actual snow to go with it, like the forecast said.

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

says: Customer Service

Thanks for the recommendation, Heather. I haven’t seen this one, but we are P.D. Eastman fans, so I’ll be on the look out for it.

Tiffany Forsland

says:

So many good ones on that list!

Jen B

says:

Thanks for the great suggestions!

Heather

says:

I love the snowy day where the boy puts snow in his pockets!

Judy

says:

Katy and the Big Snow and The Snowy Day are great!!! I also saw Snowmen at Night on the Readers’ picks and we like that one a lot. Here are some of our other favorite Winter reads-SNOW DAY (We have to shout the title before we start reading.)-Werner Zimmerman (We met him at a library presentation and have a signed copy. It is a treasure!!!), Tracks in the Snow-Wong Herbert Yee, ZOO FLAKES ABC-Will C. Howell, and Fancy Nancy There’s No Day Like a Snow Day-Based on the creation of Jane O’Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

says: Customer Service

Thank you for all the recommendations, Judy!

Iris

says:

I love Jan Brett’s “The Hat” and “The Mitten”. I also love “Snowy Day”. When I teach with that book, we use foam paint or shaving cream and make various lines and patterns with sticks and other materials-just like the boy in the story.

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

says: Customer Service

Oooo, this is a great go-along activity, Iris. Thank you.

Ann

says:

Loved your book suggestions! We also like reading Snowflake Bentley.

Joyce

says:

Just ordered a few to enjoy with my kids. Looking forward to some new great books!

Robyn Savage

says:

I can’t wait to read some of these w/my kiddo!

Tristan RowLee

says:

I was just reading The Snowy Day to my younger boys today. Thanks for more winter book ideas!

Amy Rose

says:

My son really liked Snow Bots by Aaron Reynolds. He’s in a robot phase, the poem is pretty clever, and the illustrations are cute.

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

says: Customer Service

Amy,
Thank you for the recommendation. There are lots of robot crazy kids out there.

kasey

says:

Looks like these are books for littles. What about some winter themed books for bigger kids?

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

says: Customer Service

Kasey,
Here are a couple suggestions:

Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Mostly set in winter. It’s a great first chapter book read aloud.

Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder. A lot of the story is in winter. We love the part when Alonso hooks his oxen calves up to his sled, and the mayhem that ensues. This is a harder level for listening that Little House in the Big Woods, but still younger bigger kids. Note, do not read this book aloud while hungry. The descriptions of food will make your stomach growl!

I’m sorry, but these are the only snow/winter books I can think of for older kids off the top of my head. I am sure there are others. I’ll pass along your suggestion for themed book recommendations for bigger kids too.

Iris

says:

Try “Snow Treasure”. It was one of my favorite chapter books growing up. Set during WW II, some boys help their country by smuggling gold to safety, under the Nazi’s noses, on their sleds.

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

says: Customer Service

Sounds like a great suggestion, thanks Iris.

Tabatha johnson

says:

Thank you! My child and I go to the library every two weeks. She loves picking out books!

Susannah

says:

I love this list. I wish I could get all of them to read to my little one. :)

BN

says:

Thank you. These will be great for our snow season to come. Although it has not snowed yet!

Kirsten

says:

Thanks for these suggestions. My boys love The Mitten!

Cheree

says:

We are in the middle of a hot summer here in Australia, but even so, my boys still love reading winter stories – especially about snow (which they have not yet experienced!)
Thankyou for reading suggestions!

Laura Stephenson

says:

Even though we live in a warmer climate we enjoy learning about all that a snowy, cold winter has to offer. One of our favorites to read in winter is “Snowflake Bentley” by Jacqueline Briggs Martin, to learn about the wonderful science of snowflakes.

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

says: Customer Service

Thank you for the recommendation of Snowflake Bentley, Laura! We love learning about the science of almost anything, so this book sounds right up our alley.

Tracy

says:

Thank you for this list. We have been snowed in since November. I am going to look up these books at our library! :-)

Kacy

says:

Thanks for a great list! Excited to add them to our winter reading line up!!

Vera Jurevis

says:

Thank you so much for these tips! It gets overwhelming choosing a good book and having these suggestions is a great way to go.

Sara H

says:

We love winter books! Great list some of these we have never read, will be checking them out!

Rachel Quinlivan

This looks wonderful. Especially for children who live in warmer climates, and may never see snow.

Kelly M

says:

Fabulous List! We just went through one holiday book between Christmas and New Years. This list should get us through the cold MN winter. Thanks Maria!

katie

says:

We love books about winter. Thanks for the list!

Thanks so much for this list! We’ve been doing preschool activities for “The Mitten” all week. Another fun book is “Snowmen at Night.” We don’t get snow here in the Florida Panhandle, but January is cold, and these great books help my preschoolers experience a taste of winter. They’re always trying to create snow with packing peanuts!

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

says: Customer Service

Jennifer,
We are in Arizona, so I understand this completely.

Thank you for the recommendation of Snowmen at Night.

Charity

says:

This is a great list! Thanks:)

Sara

says:

We love The Mitten, but I will be looking for some of the other books listed to read to my kids this winter. Thanks!

Chelsie Geary

says:

I love winter too. We have not had any snow yet and it has been on the warmer side. These books make me dream of snow and I hope some will be in our future before winter is over!

Yulia

says:

Mitten and Owl Moon are my very favorite!
Thank you for sharing!

Nicole Mendez

says:

Thanks you for the awesome reading lists. We are looking forward to reading these books!

Tammy Morrill

says:

Thomas’ Snowsuit by Robert Munsch

Megan

says:

We have read Katy and the Big Snow hundreds of times! We live in Arkansas so often the only snow we get is in books!

Laura

says:

The mitten! That one is really fun. I’ll have to check out the others!

Jul

says:

We like, ‘Snow.’ It’s very simple, and no matter what shelf I ‘hide’ it on so the other books can get a turn, my kids find it..:

Leslie

says:

I have used your book suggestion many times on our trips to the library. I have not been let down yet. Thanks so much for great suggestions!

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

Kristi Lay

says:

We just moved to NY and there has not been any snow for us yet this year… so I think I will find Geraldine’s big Snow for my daughter! Thanks for the book suggestion list, there are a bunch of good ones!

Karlee

says:

Thank you for these lists!! So helpful when picking up library books!

Kathy

says:

I loved the mitten book for my kids! They wanted it read so many times I pretty much had it memorized! One of our other favorite winter books it The miracle of St Nicholas. The kids love that as well!

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

says: Customer Service

Kathy,
Thanks for the recommendation of The Miracle of St. Nicholas.

Anne

says:

I loved the Christmas book suggestions, so I’m excited to give these a try. Some we have read, but not all. Thanks for putting all in one place!

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

says: Customer Service

You’re welcome, Anne. Have you seen our other picture book blog posts as well?

Shannon

says:

We have been using AAR level 1. Our son is doing quite well with this program. We have read many of these books together and have enjoyed them.

Shannon S

says:

What a collection. I bet my granddaughter would love most of these.

Angie

says:

Thanks for all the good suggestions! We love Owl Moon and Katy and the Big Snow!

Magela Gonzalez

says:

This is a great list. I can’t wait to read them with my kids. Thank you.

Mary S.

says:

Thanks for all the suggestions! We love picture books in our home and are always looking for good ones to check out from the library.

Rachel H

says:

Stranger in the Woods is one of our favorites, as well as Katy. Seems like there is more books on summer than winter.

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

says: Customer Service

Rachel,
Interesting observation about there being more book on summer than winter. I wonder why that is? Both seem equally full of fun opportunities.

Charity stratton

says:

Oh fun! Thank you. I love the blog. I find so many fun ways to work with my daughters.

KB

says:

I love The Mitten and The Red Sled

Heather

says:

Since we FINALLY have snow we should pull out some snow stories and drink hot chocolate. Thanks for the great recommendations.

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

says: Customer Service

Heather,
Throw a snowball or two for my poor snow-deprived kids, and enjoy the stories and hot chocolate!

Roxane

says:

It would be so nice to win.

Hannah Fields

says:

Great suggestions!

Rebecca

says:

No favorites yet that I can think of that the kids ask for again and again. But you have a number of ones I haven’t seen before listed above, so I’m going to be making a list to look up and see if our library has them!

You mentioned our favorite – “The Snowy Day” by Ezra Jack Keats! We love that book in our house!

Meg Cleary

says:

Love this ideals.

Jennifer Vasquez

says:

Such a great list of books! We have read lost of them. One of our favorites is “Owl Moon”. It is such a wonderful storybook!

Kristie

says:

Love the site!

Tara Santucci

says:

Great list of books!!

Esther

says:

This is a great list. Need to get these on hold at our library! It would be even better if we got snow :)
Thanks for sharing.
Blessings!

Agnes

says:

Thank you for sharing the book selection list!

delpha.powell

says:

The Snowy Day, The Mitten, and Owl Moon are timeless favorites for winter. Here in Oregon, we can hope for snow, but more often than not, we must experience it in picture books. What a delightful way to spend a cozy winter morning together with your children. I look forward to reading the rest of the list and am grateful for all your work.

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

says: Customer Service

Delpha,
I understand that. We dwell deep in the Arizonan desert, so everything my children know about snow they have learned from a book or movie (but mostly books). I love that kids for whom barefoot Januarys is commonplace can experience mountains and snow and many other exotic things through books.

DailyWoman (Lacey)

says:

Great List of Books. Love all of them.

Shanee

says:

Great list!

Sarah H

says:

love all these book suggestions

Jennifer

says:

I have a few of these books and need to get on my library’s website. I need to start putting winter books on hold.

Mandy Ferguson

says:

We love the Snowy Day snd Owl Moon. Such beautiful stories!

Mindy

says:

We love Owl Moon and Snowy Day! Those are great books! I’ll have to look into the others.

Kristin

says:

All of Jan Brett’s books are wonderful and many are winter themed. Love how she uses the border pictures to help tell the story. Great list.

Sarah Fink

says:

This makes me homesick for Minnesota! Thanks for the great suggestions!

Janet Belcher

says:

My son and I really enjoyed reading The Mitten by Jan Brett. She writes such fun stories and the illustrations are beautiful.

Bethany

says:

We just read Katy and the big snow a couple days ago. Love that book. Brave Irene sounds wonderful as well!

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

says: Customer Service

Bethany,
We read Katy and the Big Snow so many times when my boys were little. They loved all stories about tractors and other big machines.

Brittany

says:

Can’t wait to try All About Reading with my 4yo son.

Eweandtheshepherd

says:

What a great selection! Great ideas for our homeschool coop.

Crystal

says:

Thanks for this. I hate wondering around the library randomly grabbing books.

Robin E. at All About Learning Press

says: Customer Service

Crystal,
There is something empowering in going to the library with a list and heading purposefully toward the shelves. I know, because I did just that today (although it was for books for me, my kids are now beyond picture books).

Kelly

says:

We love Owl Moon. Beautifully illustrated!
