our local library.
I just loved this one and its sweet rhythm.
It reflects a large family in a joyful light
and ends with a gentle spiritual touch.
This book can be set to the "Twelve Days of Christmas" tune!
(Perfect right after Christmas)
The story centers around all the things you can use to build a snowman...
Some good ideas and fun counting.
I just love author Lois Ehlert.
Her books are great for art projects as her illustrations are often created using shapes. We read this one and got some great ideas!
This site called Kinder Korner has some great learning extension ideas for Lois Ehlert books and other winter themed books, to include a wonderful Jan Brett author study!
This is a true story about a boy who was homeschooled!
Fascinating fit for kids.
Wilson A. Bentley developed a technique of micro-photography
to reveal to the world the grandeur and mystery of the snowflake! He followed his dreams, using the gifts God gave him...Great for after-reading conversation!
This was just a precious little story and great counting fun!
How about you? We would love to hear about your favorite winter stories!
Almost forgot to mention this "Through The Looking Glass" link . It also gives some great reviews on winter books and others. I like that it shows a little picture of the book cover.
And one final recommendation for Mamas!
I am loving this easy little book of reflections, new from Karen Edmisten.
~Through The Year With Mary~365 Reflections~
I find these snippets of soul food to be perfect prayer aspirations for my day, keeping me focused on All For Jesus, Through Mother Mary.
