These are our favorite Winter Picture Books and they’re all perfect books to cozy up with on a cold winter’s day. There’s a mix of old and new, all with wonderful stories, seasonal information, and beautiful illustrations.
We do more reading during the Winter than any other time of year. It’s cold, so there’s less play outside. It’s dark so soon in the day too so bedtime is earlier. Consequently, there’s a lot more time for reading during dark, cold season.
Even when we do venture out into the cold, it’s not long before winter picture books and blanket are calling.
There’s something so cozy about cuddling up with a blanket and a book in the Winter. If I add a cup of hot chocolate to the invitation, I can almost guarantee a few kids happily ready to cozy up with a big stack of Winter Picture Books.
These Winter Picture Books aren’t Christmas books (that’s a separate list). These are Winter Picture Books you can enjoy all winter long! We’ve read them all, in fact, we own almost every book on this list, and we give them our wholehearted recommendation.
We have books about blizzards, about animals hibernating, and more than one snowman makes an appearance here too. There’s explanations of how snowflakes are created (grow your own snowflakes too!), classic award winners from your own childhood, as well as funny books to inspire giggles along with beautiful heartwarming stories too. It’s a really good mix of Winter Picture Books.
