Winter Picture Book List

What is better than snuggling up on the couch together after coming in from outside and reading some winter-themed books?

Here are just a few of the winter books that we are reading right now!

I keep most of these books in a plastic bin in the basement and pull them out in December. It keeps them all together in one spot and they feel brand new after not seeing them for a whole year!
