We live in the Midwest, where it’s freezing all the time and it snows a lot! When I was a kid I remember loving snow days. I loved getting to stay at home for the day and not having to go anywhere. I can say that my feelings about snow days have changed now especially in parenting a child with Sensory Processing Disorder who doesn’t like change.
Today, I am sharing our five favorite winter snow day books! Miss Sensory loves to read books. I love to have a stack of books to read on snow days! You may be able to find some of these at your local library or you can purchase these books via my affiliate links below and have them on hand waiting for the next snow day.
Clifford’s First Snow Day
We are big fans of Clifford in our house so this makes the top of the list for snow day books. (Side note I actually had this book as a child and loved it!) As usual Clifford ends up on quite an adventure in this one.
Fancy Nancy: There’s No Day Like a Snow Day
Even a snow day is fancy when Nancy is around! From making snow angels to building snowmen to catching snowflakes . .
The Snowy Day
This book is a beautiful classic, and a 1963 winner of the Caldecott Medal. A wonderful story about exploring the snow after the first snowfall.
Willow and the Snow Day Dance
This book just melt’s my heart. In this Willow sequel one little girl’s ability to see people and things different and to open the minds and hearts of others helps to bring the liveliness back to a lonely neighbor’s life. Just in time to make the most of the first snow day.
An beautifully illustrated depiction of a perfect snow day. Piling under warm blankets. Sipping hot chocolate in snowman mugs. Building a snow fort. Sledding in the neighbor’s field. In scene after snowy scene, from sunrise to sundown, a pair of siblings, with their father in tow, show how they would make the most of their day off.
