A Trio of winter tales

We're having a very mild winter around our area this year. And I'm a little sad that there will not be any snow for Christmas. Since I'm missing the snow I've been stocking up on lots of wintry reads to share with my two kids and have three I'd love to share with you today.

First is No Two Alike by Keith Baker. Beautiful wintry illustrations follow two birds as a simple tale tells how there are no two just alike be it snowflakes, birds nest or two birds of a feather. It's a fun celebration of all the wonderful differences around us.

Hold on tight for Red Sled by Lita Judge and get ready to let go of some wheeeees and whoas! This book made up of primarily sound effects shares the fun of a red sled and some good friends on a snowy winter night. The illustrations are just as fun and colorful as the story!

Last up is Old Bear and His Cub by Olivier Dunrea. Filled with sweetly beautiful illustrations and a heartwarming story of an Old Bear and his cub. They both love one another and look out for one another even when they don't think they need to be looked after. It's a story that is sure to warm you on a cold winter's day.
