Cozy up with Snow + Winter-Themed Children’s Books
Winter is coming, and with the promise of snowfall (or here in San Francisco, maybe a little frost) comes the best seasonal celebration of all: curling up in a cozy chair with blanket on lap and book in hand. Cue the fuzzy slippers, hot chocolate, and crackling fire—we have all the wintry wonderland books for you and your little ones to make a perfect evening.

Touch-and-Feel Board Books
For the littlest readers, these books provide a soothing read-aloud experience with irresistible touch-and-feel elements. Baby Reindeer tells the tale of a baby reindeer’s day, from waking up until falling asleep. Follow along with a sweet finger puppet that travels along with you, page by page. Children will also fall in love with the gentle art in Baby Basics: My Dreams, an adventure through a dream-world complete with dinos and magic carpets. This book is best read under blankets to see the glow-in-the-dark details!
Picture Books about Penguins
These flightless birds capture the hearts of children everywhere. A new penguin friend takes a star turn in a neatly executed ice dance with the exuberant Flora in the wordless book Flora and the Penguin. In Penguins, Penguins, Everywhere!, penguin fans will learn fresh new facts about their favorite bird.
Snowy Fiction Picture Books
Take a thrilling ride in Bunny Slopes, an interactive book that urges the reader to shake, tilt, and turn the book in order to bring red-scarfed Bunny down the ski slope. A night adventure brings a little girl in First Snow to a true winter wonderland of children all enjoying the first snowfall of the season. And lastly, a boy, with the help of his faithful companion Boggan, discovers the true meaning of giving in The Wish Tree. (Be forewarned: you may find yourself hosting a night feast of hazelnut souffles.)
Nature-Themed Nonfiction Picture Books
Tuck your young readers in with Sleep Tight Farm, perfect for families wrapping up weekend hayrides, pumpkin patches, and apple-picking season. In this beautiful book, children get a peek into how a farm prepares for winter. With each page turn, another part of the farm is put to bed. Our last stop on our tour of winter wonderlands is the secret subnivean zone, deep under the snow, where animals play, sleep, hide, and eat during the winter months. Over and Under the Snow peels away the layers of the world to reveal the dazzling life both over and under the snow.
