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.
