With snow on the ground or in the forecast this week in a number of states, snow is again on my mind. If you end up snowbound, snuggle up and enjoy these two excellent collections of winter stories for children with your family. Another children's book I love for this season is Winter Lights: A Season in Poems & Quilts, which includes poems about the lights of the winter solstice, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Chinese New Year and more. In addition, I recommend these children's picture books about winter and snow.
