โ„๏ธWinter Favorite ๐Ÿ“–Reading ๐Ÿ“šCollection โ€ข Kids Books

Below are ๐Ÿ“šbooks we have been enjoying reading during the coldโ„๏ธWinter months. We love snow and winter, and we love creating fairy-tale settings for our children to play out their imagination. (I wrote about the importance of imaginary play in child's development here.) So, we love bringing books to life through small world play by creating scenes and incorporating the characters from books to let our children role-play, explore the plot and its characters.

Do you ๐ŸŽ‰celebrate The โ„๏ธWinter solstice โ€” also known as Yule, Midwinter, the Shortest ๐ŸŒ…Day of the Year and the Longest ๐ŸŒŒNight! This holiday, (which lands usually on December 21st) is a great opportunity to bring out a ๐ŸŒglobe and a ๐Ÿ”ฆflashlight and discuss the sun, the seasons, the tilt of the ๐ŸŒ Earth and so much more!  

๐ŸŒฌWinter ๐ŸŒ… Solstice Books:

  • The Shortest Day: Celebrating the Winter Solstice book (buy here) has lots of fun activities you can do with your kiddo such as determining the positioning of the โ˜€๏ธ on the ๐ŸŒ…horizon by measuring a shadow, ๐Ÿ–sketching the positioning of the sun โ˜€๏ธ by using a compass and more;
  • The Return of the Light: Twelve Tales from Around the World for the Winter Solstice (buy here) is a wonderful collection of stories honoring the winter solstice, but for an older child – 8 yo and up.
