Snow Books

Since this is the time of year when a lot of us are having to deal with the snow that comes our way, I thought it only fitting to share a list of books with the word snow in their titles. 

The recommended reading level is ages 4 - 8.

- Snow Bugs by Susan Schade
- Dinos in the Snow! by Karma Wilson
- When Will the Snow Trees Grow? by Ben Shecter
- Frog, Bee and Snail Look for Snow by Loek Koopmans
- Snow! Snow! Snow! by Lee Harper
- Dream Snow by Eric Carle
- White Snow, Bright Snow by Alvin Tresselt
- The Three Snow Bears by Jan Brett
- Snow Joe by Carol Greene
- Snip, Snip ... Snow! by Nancy Poydar
- Mouse's First Snow by Lauren Thompson
- Snow Friends by M. Christina Butler

There are so many other great books with the word snow in the titles.  What is your favorite snow book?

OMG, there's a Karma Wilson book that I don't own! How did that happen? :)

Hi Susanne .. pass on the children's ones .. though I must have read many as a kid!

The one that springs to mind as a whodunnit - and one I thoroughly enjoyed .. "Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow" by Peter Hoeg .. superb descriptions of snow flakes, particles etc .. -Inuit overtones ..

Now I think about it .. I'd like to read it again!! Not sure if it got evacuated out when I moved.

Great books to buy with Christmas coming and youngies to satisfy with their reading habits.

Thanks - Hilary

Thanks! for sharing

We have some of these! Although I can't think of another with Snow in it, except maybe Snow White...but that hardly counts. Ha!

I'm not a big snow fan, but this kind of snow I like. That's a great list.

Hmmm...Snow Day! I can't remember who wrote it. I loved reading it to my class right before we were getting (hoping for) a snow day in Arkansas.

Have a great weekend!

I'm drawing a blank. I don't know if I know any snow books. Wah.

Hi, Corey, I take it you are a fan of Karma Wilson? Thanks for stopping by.
Hi, Hilary. I'll have to look for that book. It sounds interesting. Thanks for stopping by.
hi, Tribute Books Mama. Thanks for stopping by to check out the list of snow books.
Hi, Carolina. Snow White would count. The word snow would be in the title. Since I was looking for books that were about the cold, fluffy, white stuff that we build snowmen with, I chose not to list any of the Snow White books. Not that there weren't a lot of them.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi, Mason. I'm not a big snow fan, either. It was fun looking at all the different books with the word snow in the title. I like that kind of snow, lol. Thanks for stopping by.
Hi, Sharon. I found a couple of books titled Snow Day. One was written by Lester L. Laminack and one was written by Komako Sakai. Thanks for stopping by!
Hi, Jennifer. That's okay if you can't think of any. I'll be sharing other lists of Christmas and winter type books over the next couple of weeks. Thanks for stopping by.

Oooo! I can think of great books with lots of snow, but for the life of me I can't think of their titles. I remember the stories, though, which is a compliment to the authors.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Eek, it's not even winter yet and I'm already sick of the snow. But at least we finally got the winter tires on. :D

Great list. I recognize some of them.

Julie, I do that with book titles, too. I'm the same way with movies. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
Hi Stina. I always say that if I only get snow the week between Christmas and New Years that I would be very happy. Have to say I'm definitely tired of the cold. Brr. Thanks for stopping by.
