Do You Want to Build a Snowman? A Snow-Themed Picture Book List (And Literacy Musings Monday with a Giveaway!)

I live in the South. We don't often get snow, so when it's called for, people get pretty excited. The weather forecasters predicted snow this weekend. Six to eight inches some estimates said. Friday night we headed to bed sure that we'd wake up to a winter storm on Saturday morning. Trucks were out salting the road. Events planned for Saturday had already been canceled. The grocery stores were raided as we all stocked up on bread and milk. And Saturday morning?

We had a little bitty dusting of snow, along with some really cold temperatures and ice. So much for our snow. Instead the kids went to a local site known for its big hills and sledded on the ice...until it began to melt.

If we can't enjoy the snow, we might as well read about it. And so, in honor of our "six to eight inches of snow" this weekend, here's a list of snow-themed books you can read with the kids.
Don't forget to link up your family-friendly, book-themed posts in the Literacy Musings Monday linkup at the bottom of this post. There's also a great giveaway that we're starting this week,

Linkup Rules:

  1. Include a link back or the blog hop button linked to this hop on your posts.
  2. Link up the urls to your posts not to your blog.
  3. Please remember this is a family-friendly linkup. Although we believe in the right for adults to read whatever they want to read, we prefer to read wholesome posts that feature literature that edify and uplift families. We reserve the right to delete any posts that are not family friendly. We love all kinds of literature and genres including family-friendly inspirational romances, fantasy, or science fiction. We do not welcome any posts that feature excessive violence, sexual content, or any cursing. This rule also applies to book review posts that feature books that are not family-friendly. These posts will be deleted without notice to the blogger or explanation. While we believe in the right for all adults to read whatever they want, we feel our linkup is for family-friendly posts only. Thank you for understanding.
  4. We also want to be loving community by supporting one another. Please make a point to do this this week! Visit the two posts before yours and at least one other blogger's post of your choice! I want to see lots of clicks on everyone's posts. Remember it is also nice to follow them on their social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.
