What better way to spend a cold, snowy day than inside, curled up with a good book? Well, if you ask Karen, the only thing better is to have a good book and a mug of rich, creamy hot cocoa. If you ask Nancy, she would want a good book and a robot companion. To each her own…
Anyway… of course, the common factor is a good book. So here are some good books for winter (in no particular order):
- Miracles on Maple Hill by Virginia Sorenson (Karen’s pick)
- The Long Winter by by Laura Ingalls Wilder (Nancy’s pick)
- The Winter Room by Gary Paulsen
- Tracks in the Snow by Lucy Jane Bledsoe
- Beardance by Will Hobbs
- Snow Treasure by Marie McSwigan
- The Willows in Winter by William Horwood
- The Winter of Red Snow: The Revolutionary War Diary of Abigail Jane Stewart, Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, 1777 (Dear America) by Kristiana Gregory
- Maroo of the Winter Caves by Ann Turnbull
- On Winter’s Wind by Patricia Hermes
- The Call of the Wild by Jack London
If you’ve read any of these, send in your book review. Or send in a review of your winter book!
UPDATE 1/12/10: We revealed the answer to our Winter Mystery Book Theater in the “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” Podcast, so take a listen if you want to know the answer. Or just tune in if you want to hear Karen go a little crazy trying to define “winter.” Seriously, we had to edit it down.
