This time, the old lady is swallowing everything from snow to a pipe, some coal, a hat, and more! With rollicking, rhyming text and funny illustrations, this lively version will appeal to young readers. And this time, there is a surprise at the end no reader will be able to guess!

The colors and textures of winter—the cool blue of icy ponds and the golden glow of holiday candles—are gloriously captured in linoleum-cut illustrations. A companion volume to Autumn, Spring, and Summer, Winter rounds out the year of seasonal collaborations by Steven Schnur and Leslie Evans.

SnowCynthia Rylant’s lyrical descriptions of the sights and feelings evoked by falling snow blend gorgeously with the rich and beautiful world created by Lauren Stringer’s illustrations, in which a young girl, her friend, and her grandmother enjoy the many things a snowy day has to offer.

Red SledIn this almost wordless picture book, a host of woodland creatures take a child's sled for a nighttime joy ride. Their whimsical ride is gorgeously depicted in bold watercolor, complemented by humorous expressions and pitch-perfect sound effects. With a timeless tone and classic characters, RED SLED will become a wintertime favorite.

Big Snow: "An excited and frustrated boy watches hopefully as wintry weather develops slowly into a 'big snow.'"--

These questions and more are answered in this visually stunning exploration of the science of snow. Perfect for reading on winter days, the book features photos of real snow crystals in their beautiful diversity. Snowflake-catching instructions are also included.

Snow Sounds: Spare poetry and elegant watercolor paintings cleverly bring to life this unique story of snow removal and the fun onomatopoeic sounds accompanying it. 



I know the title suggests this post will be about snow themed books but I recently discovered that Amazon Prime and Netflix offers several options by way of children's shows. I understand that some parents prefer not to include screen time in their curriculum, and that's okay, but I am presenting this option to the parents that don't mind or would like to include it.
