Even though we don’t have much of a winter here in North Carolina, we still enjoy reading books about winter! It makes those rare snow days even more exciting. Since we have been updating our reading nook, I thought I would share some Fun Winter Books for Kids. This list has books for kids of all ages….from board books to chapter books!
I really enjoy switching out the books in our reading nook! This is where we keep a lot of our library books. Then I also have a couple of plastic bins to store seasonal books. Those only get brought out during those certain holidays or seasons. Then those books feel new again!

Where to find Winter Books for Kids?
The library is our favorite place to find books. I love using lists like this one to add books to our library hold list. We are also big supporters of the Scholastic Book Club. Being able to help teachers earn free books for their classrooms is something I enjoy doing.
Having seasonal books and rotating our books seems to encourage the kids to read more. Plus they love going to the library to pick out their own books.
Winter Board Books are great for toddlers!
We still love board books! Unfortunately, I know we are quickly phasing out of that stage and I will be really sad when that happens. Board Books are perfect for toddlers. You can leave them out and not have to worry about torn pages. They are also really easy to clean.
We have always loved the board books with flaps and the ones that are Touch and Feel. This helps keep the little ones engaged longer and starts to instill that love of reading and books.
Here are some great toddler books about winter! We love all the Karen Katz books. Plus who doesn’t love Curious George? Check out some of our favorites below.
- Bright Baby Touch and Feel Winter
- The Itsy Bitsy Snowman
- Baby Loves Winter (Karen Katz Lift-the-Flap Book)
- Babies in the Snow Chunky Lift-a-Flap Board Book
- Biscuit’s Snowy Day
- Curious George Curious About Winter
- That’s Not My Snowman

Winter Books for Kindergarteners who are Learning to Read
This is our stage of life right now! It is amazing to watch children learn to read. I have a huge appreciation for kindergarten teachers who have the patience and ability to help these little ones learn to read. Especially since it is such an important skill.
We do everything we can to help this process at home. I have a strong desire to raise children who enjoy reading. It is so important to provide books that they will enjoy and that will encourage them to read.
There are so many Level 1 Readers that are perfect for Kindergarteners and that will appeal to their interests. Finding books that contain their favorite characters is a great way to get them interested in books.
- Pete the Cat: Snow Daze
- Biscuit’s Snow Day Race
- Pinkalicious and the Amazing Sled Run
- Dixie and the Best Day Ever
- Splat the Cat: Blow, Snow, Blow
Winter Books about Penguins
Anyone else have kids who love penguins? They are pretty adorable so I can totally see why. I always include penguins when we are doing winter activities since they are our favorite arctic animal!
We’ve even done a fun penguin book craft with Oreo Cookies! It makes for a fun afternoon with cute books and a yummy snack.
