Winter Unit Study: Book List

Winter books abound at the library. Just grab whatever you have and go with it! Here were the boys' favorites from the stack we picked up for our Winter Unit studies (week 1 and week 2).


The Mitten by Jan Brett. The kids loved how the animals all fit in one mitten. They thought it was funny how the mitten stretched out. And, it was fun to make our mitten and animals to re-enact the story.


Henry and Mudge in the Sparkle Days by Cynthia Rylant (included audio cd) - these books bring on dog fever bad in Skipper. One day...


Polar Bear Night by Lauren Thompson. This is a short, very sweet book about a young cub out exploring at night only to return home to his mom in his den.


White Snow Bright Snow by Alvin Tresselt. Watch out! Snow is coming! This book tells of the townsfolk reaction, both old and young.


The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. Young Peter is out exploring. We love books by Ezra Jack Keats - no matter how old you are, they are appealing.


Snowmen at Night by Caralyn Buehner. A cute book about the antics of snowmen at night. The pictures were great.

  2. Thanks for the link, Jamie - will check it out! And, you'll get back into school and more. I have definitely been blessed with fast healing this time around and have felt back to myself so much quicker than with the other ones or else none of this would have been done!
