As we enter a new season of the year, I wanted to share some of my favorite children's books that will be perfect for you to read this winter with your children! There are some beautiful Christmas stories that are sure to become yearly traditions, and also some cute and fun stories about snowmen, winter, and penguins! Grab the book, find a cozy spot, and enjoy some good reads with your children this winter season!
In an effort to encourage your children to read this winter (perhaps for their Christmas break), there is a free two-week reading graph with a secret code included at the end of this post!
The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey by Susan Wojciechowski - Jonathan Toomey is the best woodcarver around, but he’s also considered to be probably the most grumpy man around. No one knows about the sad secret that is the cause of Mr. Toomey’s gloom. When a widow and her young son ask the woodcarver to carve them a new nativity scene, Mr. Toomey has no idea how his life is about to change. A truly heartwarming story.
The Mitten by Jan Brett - In this classic story, Nicki drops his white mitten in the snow but doesn’t realize it. It isn’t long before animals from the forest begin to take refuge inside the mitten, one by one. It starts with a mole, then a rabbit, and eventually a brown bear crawls inside. What will happen to the mitten when finally a tiny, brown mouse tries to climb inside?
