What’s a “snow squall”? It’s a relatively short but intense period of heavy snow and strong winds. And yesterday, many New York City residents (myself included) learned the term as a Snow Squall Warning was issued for NYC for the first time in history!
Fortunately, I was inside the whole day and didn’t have to deal with the storm — and I expect I’ll be spending more and more time indoors as we get into the heart of chilly winter weather. But what a perfect time to curl up with a mug of hot cocoa, a fluffy blanket, and a good book, right?
And if you’re looking for the perfect story for the season, then look no further than these two booklists published on Kidsmomo in winters past:
And if you’ve got a favorite wintry or holiday-themed book that we haven’t mentioned here, please share in the comments!
Besides the titles mentioned in our booklists, Karen would also recommend the Greenglass House books by Kate Milford — which are perfect for this time of year. A snowy lodge? Check. Cheerful Christmas traditions with family? Check. A surprising mystery and possibly dangerous criminals infiltrating the main character’s home? Perhaps not a usual part of everyone’s holidays, but check and check!
