Warm-Up with a Good Book

white snow bright snowBrrr! I am not one of those people who love winter. I despise bundling my kids up and the sickness that always comes with colder weather and more time indoors. I love sunshine, playing in the park and warm weather. However, snow is always beautiful and I am often mesmerized by a newly fallen snow.

My son and I have been exploring the science behind snow and it is very interesting. Here’s a book list with some picture books that are fun and then some more informative non-fiction. Our Rochester Hills Public Library has a wide selection of non-fiction that is wonderful for children to explore, so don’t neglect that area of the library.

2. Owl Moon by Jane Yolen
