Snow Themed Books for Preschool
There are so many adorable snow themed books to read with your preschooler this Winter. I’ve pulled some of my favorite that I have read with my own children as well as many of my classroom student’s favorites over the years. Some of the books are about snow itself. Several include snowmen and even a few are about Winter and the arrival of snow.
No matter where you live it’s important to talk about this change in season for kids to understand the science and fun behind it.
