We live in the Deep South. Our winters can get cold on occasion, but usually they’re fairly mild.
I can count the number of times I’ve seen actual snowfall on one hand.
During winter, the best way we have to learn about snow is to read about it.
This list of 15 snow books for kids is a great way to build a winter read-aloud library!
There are fiction and non-fiction picture books in this list.
When you’re introducing these types of books, you can use this list of children’s books to help students learn the differences between the two.

15 Fun Snow Books for Kids to Read
These snow books for kids are perfect for adding to a winter or snow theme.
If you decide to use all of the books on the list, you can read one per day for three weeks straight.
Or you could separate the books into fiction and non-fiction selections and then have students look for the differences in the way each book is written.
Some of the books about snow feature winter animals as well.
If you are studying any of the typical winter animals such as owls, bears, or deer during winter, those books would make a good tie-in for those themes.
You could also use some of the books that talk about snow and snowflakes as bases for snowflake crafts or easy snow science experiments.
