    I love the idea of changing the books on the shelf depending on the season. I tend to do it based on events that are coming up, so at the moment I have valentines/love type stories and then I’ll change to Easter type books. The idea of seasons is great though and I might have to pinch it 🙂

    Oooh these all look so lovely – I particularly love the illustrations in the Walking in a Winter Wonderland – they remind me of the style of some of my favourites when younger (we had Topsy and Tim books from the 70s and the style was very similar in many ways!)

    Ahh what a gorgeous selection!! I love the idea of seasonal books, we never really do that other than at Christmas! My children love to look at books, I will definitely consider a few of these next time we buy them!

    Some new to me titles – I just love how bright & vibrant picture books; a great pick me up with the little one on a grey & dreary January day.

    Ahh we’ve just borrowed ‘Up and Down’ from the library! It’s so lovely, just right for nearly-2-year-old. I always forget to read wintery books after Christmas which is silly as we’ll have at least another two months of wintery weather! I’ll look for the other books you’ve suggested. #KLTR

    We have the storm whale and absolutely love it. One of our favourites. We are starting to move away from pictures books with Monkey to chapter ones… sob sob x

    These look lovely! We like reading the same few books over and over again, but perhaps it’s time I tried to add something new ?x

    Oh these are such a cute selection! My brain thought it was a selection of Ladybird books doh – but these are wonderful too! x #SharingtheBlogLove

    My son has still never seen snow! Not sure when he will at this rate, but these are some great books to introduce him to winter. I love the idea of having themed/seasonal books that will get him excited about how the year changes as well. #bloggerpinparty

    These look great! I think my boys would like ‘The Storm Whale in Winter’ #bloggerpinparty

    Other than Christmas books we don’t really have books for specific seasons, but it’s a really nice idea. Thanks for linking up to #KLTR

    Gorgeous selection, some favourites of ours here! I’ve just read Rabbit and Bear by Julian Gough and Jim Field to my 5yo – a great winter story and a nice introduction to longer books. #kltr
