Picture Book Puzzler: Snow

January 9th, 2012 by Eliza Eliza

It’s winter in New England, but where’s all our snow? I like looking at these snowy picture books to put me in a winter-y mood, even when outside my window there’s not a flake on the ground. It’s lovely to live vicariously through books! I did a snow puzzler last year so I had to pick ten more picture books that I hadn’t used before. Can you guess which ones they are? I admit I got a little sneaky with one or two of them…

    Hmm, tough one. #2 is Mama Do You Love Me?, #7 is The Polar Express, #9 is The Little House, and #10 looks really familiar, but I can’t place it.

    One of my favorite winter books to read aloud with the kids is Winter Poems (ed. Barbara Rogasky, ill. Trina Schart Hyman). Beautiful illustrations, and a really good selection of winter poems. The poems are entirely about the season of winter, and not a single one of them is holiday themed. Nothing against the holidays, but sometimes it’s nice to enjoy winter simply for its own snowy merits, and to have the book continue to be relevant to kids past Dec. 25.

    Thanks for the post!

    I can fill in a few. #4 is Tomten; #10 is The Snow Man; #8 is Stopping By Woods on Snowy Evening; and #6 seems like Barbara Cooney’s work—maybe Miss Rumphius?

    I’m hoping for snow, too!
