Great Winter Books for Kids

Luckily we don’t have any snow here yet, but winter is fast approaching, why not incorporate it into your homeschool with some fun books?

What do you do when it’s snowing outside? To keep warm with your family, snuggle up and read a good book. I’ve already placed mine on hold at the library. I figure since we get to keep the books for three weeks, we’ll be in December by then and bound to see snow. If not, it will still make for a good read. I always keep a list of books ready just in case the ones I want are not available. That’s the downside of relying on the library for all your books, you may not always get it when you want it.

Sometimes, I catch my middle schooler reading picture books, he’s a very visual learner, and if it’s a good book, he can’t resist. I love this time of year when Christmas is around the corner, you can deviate from your regular homeschooling plans and just read and enjoy great books. I like to look for activities or lapbooks that I wouldn’t normally have time for and bring those out in December. You’ll have plenty of time in the new year to get back to your old plans.

Winter picture books:

Read these books just for fun or use them in your homeschool. Have the children write about what they learned or enjoyed from the story. Let them draw their own pictures or turn their writing into a notebook or lapbook. Have fun reading these books with your children with some hot chocolate in your home to keep warm this winter.
