Wonderful Winter Books for Kids

diy printables lesson planner templates

Luckily we don’t have any snow here yet, but winter is fast approaching, why not incorporate it into your homeschool with some fun Winter books for kids? These books are the perfect way to get the kids engaged and wanting to read!

What do you do when it’s snowing outside? To keep warm with your family, snuggle up and read a good book. I’ve already placed mine on hold at the library. I figure since we get to keep the books for three weeks, we’ll be in December by then and bound to see snow. If not, it will still make for a good read.

I always keep a list of books ready just in case the ones I want are not available. That’s the downside of relying on the library for all your books, you may not always get it when you want it.

Sometimes, I catch my middle schooler reading picture books, he’s a very visual learner, and if it’s a good book, he can’t resist. I love this time of year when Christmas is around the corner, you can deviate from your regular homeschooling plans and just read and enjoy great books.

I like to look for activities or lapbooks that I wouldn’t normally have time for and bring those out in December. You’ll have plenty of time in the new year to get back to your old plans.
