Nonfiction Books About Winter and Snow...And the Literacy Musings Monday Linkup

I've shared some great snow and winter-themed picture books lately in keeping with the season and weather around my area right now. But what if you want to teach kids some of the science behind the winter season?

I think that good books are usually a better- and more interesting- way to learn than just reading a chapter in a textbook, so in this post I'm sharing some good nonfiction books that you can read with the kids to learn about winter and snow.

(Don't forget to link up your reading related posts and enter the giveaway!)
