Winter Books for Kids

Winter is a time for snuggling up under blankets inside, but also for getting out and exploring nature. Here are some winter picture sure to inspire exploration.


The Big Snow - Picture book which tells how many animals prepare for and spend the winter months. This is a great book to read to kids in conjunction with a nature study. In addition, it's perfect for young children before beginning more advanced science texts of a Charlotte Mason curriculum such as Ambleside On-line.

Winter Trees - Picture book which describes how to identify trees by their shape.

Snow Tracks by Jean George - This book tells the story of what the animals are doing based on their tracks.

Up North in Winter by Deborah Hartley - During the year 1911, Grandpa had to take a job in another town. The winter was cold and life was difficult.

When Peter was lost in the forest by Hans Peterson - Seven year old Peter curiously follows animal tracks, but soon gets lost. He's lucky enough to find shelter for the night in an old broken down house.

In the same way The Big Snow describes what animals do during the winter, White Snow, Bright Snow describes what people do.
