Snowtime fun – What we’re reading

IMG_7255This is a cute little board book for babies and toddlers. It is the perfect size for tiny hands (although for a board book the pages are quiet thin but they are sturdy all the same). It’s a fairly short book that although it says it is a Christmas book, I feel is more of a general winter book (as there is no mention of Christmas). Instead of focusing on Christmas, this little book describes nine fun winter activities such as sledging, building a snowman and drinking hot cocoa. Each activity has a page to itself with a fun and colourful illustration and a couple of rhyming sentence to describe the activity. This year my baby seems to enjoy looking at the colourful pictures and listening to the rhymes but I can imagine reading this to her in future years and her getting more out of it. For example you could read it to a toddler experiencing the first snow day that they really understand, before building a snowman or going for a winter walk.

I have one more Christmas book that I want to share with you, so come back next Tuesday (Christmas eve) for Christmas magic. I have a couple of posts on Christmas sensory play for babies that I hope to get up this week too.

    Oh that’s gorgeous – such lovely rich illustrations (I’m a complete sucker for lovely illustrations!) It’s nice to have wintery books that don’t suddenly seem passed it as soon as you get to Boxing Day too isn’t it!

      I’m drawn to lovely illustrations too. I agree it is nice to have none Christmas, wintery books as well especially since most of the snow is usually after Christmas.
