What’s On the Booklist

I decided to primarily include books that could be read over the course of winter. Living in Minnesota as I do, it feels like half the year is dedicated to the snowy season (oh wait, it is), so I didn’t want to include too many holiday books in this list (you can see my Christmas booklist here if you are looking for Christmas-y reads).

There’s a decent amount of “first snowfall” themed books, but I included a variety of winter and snow-centric books to share with your kiddos all season long. I hope you love these snowy books!

In a hurry? Check out my quick age-specific recommendations as follows:

What Are the Best Books About Snow for a One-Year-Old?

Ezra Jack Keats’ The Snowy Day (grab the board book edition) will always be my favorite snowfall book for toddlers. The vivid illustrations, captivating character Peter, and the magic of the first snow will entrance even busy toddlers.

What About Picture Books for Two or Three-Year-Olds?

Kids ages 2 and 3 (and up) also really enjoy The Snowy Day, but I would add Snowmen at Night (Caralyn Buehner, pictures by Mark Buehner) and When the Snow Falls (Linda Booth Sweeney, illustrated by Jana Christy). Both are fun upbeat books that are short enough to be enjoyed by younger listeners.

What is the Best Book About Snow for a Four Year Old?

For ages 4-8 (preschoolers, kindergartners, and up), I suggest Snowflake Bentley (Jacqueline Briggs Martin, illustrated by Mary Azarian) for exploring some incredible snowflake history.

I also love Over and Under the Snow (Kate Messner, art by Christopher Silas Neal) for this age group. It gives a close look at wildlife that resides over and under the snow-covered ground. The book is full of interesting facts, entrancing illustrations, and further resources and learning in the back.

There are many more fun books on this booklist, so request some of these titles from your library or snag them from your favorite bookstore and enjoy reading together. Wintertime might just be my favorite season for reading aloud!
