Winter Animals Book Collection For Kids


It’s been really chilly in our town lately. It’s always sunny in Florida but not every January when the temperature dramatically drops. Fortunately never drops into a freezing point. During this time of the year, I make a habit to prepare books to keep my little girl occupied when it’s too cold to play outside. I gather here a collection of winter animal books from our local library. It’s part of our family routine to visit the library once a week and borrow seasonal and non-fiction books or whatever topic that sparks her interests. Vibrant photos and age-appropriate books related to the season are my considerations when choosing books to explore. Here is my list of winter animal books we love to read during winter.

“And so we discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being. It is not acquired by listening to words, but in virtue of experiences in which the child acts on his environment”.
