I met winter this week on my walks to and from work. We watched the sun shine on the fresh fallen snow, listen to the crunching noise of my footsteps and let the crisp fresh air tickle my bones. It was great!
I love Winter. Do you?
Here are some books featuring that beautiful season:

A book about a beautiful friendship with Winter. The magic of Winter is skillfully expressed in simple blue and white illustrations, silver letters and glittery snowflakes.

A cute book about fearing the unknown or chosing to embrace it. Illustrated in relief and monotype prints
On a Snowy Night
by Jean Little and illustrated by Brian Deines
A beautiful story about a pet rabbit forgotten in the snow finding its way home. Illustrated with oil and linen paintings

The Snow Queen
