What a better way to spend these cold and rainy days, but indoors with a good book about friendship and the winter season.
Waiting for Winter by Sebastian Meschenmoser follows Squirrel, Hedgehog and Bear as they wait for the first snow of winter. Laughter and fun begins when these animals, who are usually sleeping during the winter, try to find ways to stay awake. Then encounter what each thinks is snow based on what they have heard from their friend Deer. The story along with the simple pencil illustrations in this book will be enjoyed all season long.
Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson, the first in her Bear series, introduces us to Bear and his friends (mouse, mole, hare, wren, badger and gopher) on a cold winter’s night. The animals seek shelter in Bear’s cave and end up having quite a party until Bear wakes up. The rhyming text along with the bright illustrations will have you wanting to read the other books in this series.
In A Little Bit of Winter, by Paul Stewart , Hedgehog, who hibernates through the winter, wants to know what winter feels like, so he asks his friend Rabbit to save him a little bit of winter to share in the spring. The result is not only funny and silly but very heartwarming.
So gather your friends and family together to enjoy these heartwarming stories during this chilly winter season.
