If you have begun to get your home back in shape from the Holidays perhaps purging toys and books was on your task list. It is always this time of the year I realize it is time to upgrade toys and change out books and I found 5 great books to read this winter that reach all of the age groups from toddler to teen!
Toddler Pick: My Very Merry Ugly Christmas Sweater
I know that Christmas is over but this book is too cute and until I actually held this title in my hand and turned the pages it was after Christmas and still worth a winter mention. This is a board book and touch (sensory) as you turn the 5 short pages you can feel different textures of each funny sweater on animals. Author: Jeffrey Burton. Buy on Amazon.
Ages 1-5: All the Little Snowflakes
In the snowfall of winter, if you look real close, every snowflake is perfect yet always different. This is a fun poem about the joys of snowfall. Author: Cindy Jin. Buy on Amazon.
Ages 4-8: Clouds: Life’s Big & Little Moments
This is a book about Mothers and Daughters. A bond that exists in small and big moments. In a time where kids might transition back into in-school learning after months of distance learning at home, this book about a Mother’s love no matter the changes may be just what your family needs. Author: Angie and Alli Simpson. Buy on Amazon.
Dog-Loving Tweens and Teens: Our Dogs, Ourselves
Our Dogs, Ourselves: How We Live with Dogs is both educational and highly entertaining. It is hard to put this book down. I thought I’d skim it quickly then get back to it later but found myself chapters into it before I could stop. Knowing why we name dogs to whether dogs think about or love us back is fun to dig into as you move through these chapters. If your older child has a special bond with the family dog, this is for them! This is a Young Readers edition. Author: Alexandra Horowitz. Buy on Walmart.com.
For the teens: Shine: a Novel
For seventeen-year-old Korean American Rachel Kim, the answer is almost everything. Six years ago, she was recruited by DB Entertainment—one of Seoul’s largest K-pop labels, known for churning out some of the world’s most popular stars. The rules are simple: Train 24/7. Be perfect. Don’t date. Easy right? Not so much. Author: Jessica Jung. Buy on Amazon.
I found these titles through Simon & Schuster publishing. They are a go-to book source for new titles for kids and adults.
