12 Dec Snowy Day Read Alouds
When the weather is frightful, cozy up with some of these great reads to share. Searching the online catalog for winter, snow, snowman or snowmen will give you many treasures to choose. If you are looking for something specific, just ask and we can help you find it. If the weather is too frightful to even consider going out, don’t forget TumbleBooks and our eBooks through OverDrive. Here are a few of my favorite winter read alouds.
Snow Day! – Someone is very, very excited about the possibility of missing school due to snow, and plans a whole day of sledding, building forts, reading, and sipping hot chocolate rather than going to school for that test on chapter ten. The fun is the surprise of just who that person is.
Good Morning Snowplow! – As the town goes to sleep, a snowstorm begins, and the man who drives the snowplow goes to work, keeping the streets clear throughout the night.
The First Day of Winter – A snowman comes alive as the child building it adds pieces during the first ten days of winter.
Owl Moon – On a winter’s night under a full moon, a father and daughter trek into the woods to see the Great Horned Owl.
Stranger in the Woods – Forest animals, awakened by the birds’ warning that there is a stranger in the woods, set out to discover if there is danger and find, instead, a wonderful surprise.
Snowmen at Night – After nighttime falls and everyone is asleep in their beds, a group of fun-loving snowmen jump into action and have their own bit of fun while no one is around to see.
