Winter is here, and now is the perfect time to cozy up with your kiddo and read stories about the snow! Our picture book reorganization is complete, which means we now have a whole section in the picture books dedicated to winter. Come on in and we can show you how easy it is to find picture books by topic using our new picture book organization. Here are some snowy books to get you started!

Martin MacGregor’s Snowman by Lisa Broadie Cook, illustrated by Adam McCauley
