It’s snowing! My daughter shouted this morning when she woke up. And indeed the soft, cold crystals covered the ground outside. And while she was geared up to go outside and play, I was thinking about the aftermath of her adventures outdoors. What would it look like? It would be the two of us curled up with some good books, under a blanket sipping hot chocolate and tea of course. And here are our 7 snowy day books that we enjoy every time we even get a dusting!

Our Favorite Snowy day books to read after playing in the snow
Absolutely one of our very favorite books about snow. In fact it’s an award winning book, so I know we’re not the only ones. It’s all about having fun in the snow and wanting to save it, but OH NO! The snowball isn’t in his pocket. Because what kid hasn’t tried to save snow?
A really cute story about building a snowman and coming back and him not looking the same because he went exploring at night when no one was watching. Beautifully illustrated and a fun books for all ages!
There are actually many Tacky books and for some reason my daughter’s favorite is Three Cheers for Tacky the Penguin, but the original is wonderful as well. Tacky is not like the rest of the penguins, but his uniqueness is not only what makes him special ut sometimes brings unexpected good fortune like when they win a contest in the 3 cheers version!
Geraldine is SO excited about the snow that she talks to all the neighbors about when it’s coming. And they are gearing up for it too in their own ways: buying groceries, getting extra books, and gathering birdseed to see the bird come eat it. Opens great discussion as to how we prepare when the weaher changes.
An easy to read anf follow children’s book that explores what you can do in snow and encourages kids to get out and play it it. It’s a classic fromt the Beginner Books and I can read collection!
We were actually just introduced to the book in the last cuple fo weeks because it was given to us by family. It’s a really cute book about penguins playing together and their own fun game they call “Boomba!” My three year odl has really enjoyed saying boomba any chance she gets since reading it!
