The Ultimate List of Winter Books for Kids

Sharing is caring!

Brrrr! It's time for snowflakes and warm soup. With the colder temperatures and lots of time spent indoors, it gives us more time to sit on the couch together and read books. I love to go to the library and load up our book basket with books that go along with our homeschool units or the season. I've gathered up some of the books we have read over the years for a winter unit study with this very long and full book list of winter books for kids. There are a ton of our favorites on this list. (I think I say that about every book list--I just love children's books!) Pair these books up with some winter activities like a snow sensory bin, observing snowflakes, or making coffee filter snowflakes to practice cutting and fine motor skills. You and your little one will enjoy curling up on the couch with these winter books.

This is the Ultimate List of Winter Books for Kids. Perfect book list to use when planning a winter unit study or just to make your winter reading fun.
