Most children love winter, even if many adults do not (myself included). But even I have to admit that there are tons of cute crafts, activities, and books about the season.
Not all children get to build a snowman in the winter, but they can still have fun reading about them. I’ve found some fun snowman books for kids to read this winter. The list includes not just picture books, but chapter books too. I hope you can find something fun to read!
