Winter in a Picture Book

by Jean Van't Hul
February 18, 2008

February is too long and dreary for me, despite being the shortest month of the year. I always feel I have to make an extra effort to stay happy. Which for me usually means thinking about Spring, planning the garden, and looking for the first little bulbs to poke through the earth, etc. But I realize, of course, that I should embrace winter in all of its winterness (wintryness?).

So I wanted to share with you some of our favorite books about winter. Of course these books have snow as a central theme and we haven’t been getting much snow here in North Carolina, even in the mountains where I live. But here you are, snowy winter picture books…

And, a new favorite for us, Grandmother Winter by Phyllis Root, illustrated by Beth Krommes. Thank you Molly for the recommendation! We checked this out of the library and have yet to return it. This is why I I’m always paying library fines! Too many great books.

My favorite winter book of all is Winter Waits by Lynn Plourde, illustrated by Greg Couch, which I mentioned in a different post about children’s picture book illustrations.

What are your favorite picture books about winter?
