Snow and winter seems to have enveloped my home. The temperature today will not even reach 0 degrees. It has been a cold, January week in Minnesota. And for us who live here, enough said. This is the season we are in and for my own personal sanity, I am hoping to welcome an early Spring. More than likely though, we won't. Since the snow and cold temperatures consume everything outside, I decided that it might as well also flood our library book basket as well.

Our current basket is filled with:

Snow Day Stories and Poems edited by Caroline Feller Bauer
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost
It's Snowing! It's Snowing! by Jack Prelutsky
A to Z Winter
Thomas' Snowsuit by Robert Munsch
Just a Snowy Vacation by Gina & Mercer Mayer
The Jacket I Wear In The Snow by Shirley Neitzel
Now It Is Winter by Eileen Spinelli
Snow Is Falling by Franklyn M. Branley
White Snow Bright Snow by Alvin Tresselt
When Winter Comes by Nancy Van Laan
The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats
Snowflakes and Ice Skates: A Winter Counting book by Rebecca Fjelland Davis

We're even reading winter poetry as part of our school lessons these days. Here's one we found today:

Snow (by Mary Ann Hoberman)

Lots of snow
Everywhere we look and everywhere we go
Snow in the sandbox
Snow on the slide
Snow on the bicycle
Left outside
Snow on the steps
And snow on my feet
Snow on the sidewalk
Snow on the sidewalk
Snow on the sidewalk
Down the street.

That is pretty much exactly what it looks like out my window. If you are reading this and are graced with a warmer climate, please sit outside and bask in the sun for me today! I know, this too shall pass. It's just gonna be a while.


  1. Since it's not going anywhere you might as well embrace it! I am glad we have snow it's much better than cold and dreary.

  2. Hi Sarah, and thank you for your comment this morning. It is good to get to know another MN mom! :)
