Check it Out: Snow Much Fun

Submitted by J. Johnston on Wed, 12/07/2022 - 07:30

I saw a handful of snowflakes recently, and my five-year-old self went, “Whee!” Then my actual age kicked in, and I thought, “Well, I sure hope I don’t have to drive in snow this season.” The thing is, I really cherish and encourage the younger perspective because, hello, we’re talking about snow! So, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

A flurry of new-ish, snow-themed picture books are in the library’s collection, so here are my reading recommendations for little ones excited about the possibility of snow (building snowmen, making snow angels, catching snowflakes on your tongue!). Adults who understand the challenges of a snow event but who also appreciate the childlike wonder that comes from watching a beautiful, silent snowfall can derive joy from these charming picture books as well.
