Winter books

I’ve been seeing a lot of sharing of books lately (SouleMama, Green Kitchen) and thought I’d share some of our favorites for this time of year.

These two are our favorites.

While the Bears Sleep: A wonderful book with 20 different tales of a bear taking a young girl on a journey through winter tales and traditions around the world. An interesting look at what makes the holiday season special and meaningful to others.

Grandmother Winter: A nice little peak of what Grandmother Winter does all year long to prepare for winter. I love the wood-cut style illustrations.

The following pop-up, Winter’s Tale: an original pop-up journey, book is a visual feast and was gifted to us a few years back. It is made extra special by the fact that little hands aren’t allowed to touch it without a big person around. This book is extra delicate and I’d like it to remain intact for as long as possible.

Although the story is nice, the 3D paper sculptures in this book are the main treat of this very well made book.

If you have any favorites, please leave a comment (or a link) to tell me. I’m always looking for good books to read with the kids.

    I collect children’s literature and I love to see what others love. I do love pop-up books. I get as much fun out of those as the kids with their eyes so wide.

    The Mitten Tree…..can’t think of the author, but I ordered it through scholastic at school. Pretty sure, it actually makes me tear up, and while I think of it, we just read this a few times this week, Spider and the Fly, buy Tony Diterlizzi. I can be reading it in one room with one child and my other two will stop what they are doing a scramble up beside me. I also find it really fun to read! And the illos are fantastic, so for us it is an all year round book.
    The Mitten by Jan Brett who is a very local artist is also requested a bunch all year long!

    One of my favorite children’s books is The Quiltmaker’s Gift By Jeff Brumbeau. It’s really a beautiful book in story & to look at.

    Is the pop-up by the guys that were on Martha last week? It really looks similar to what they made- I forget what their names were, though!
