The First Day of Winter by Denise Flemming
Handmade paper and stencil illustrations show a snowman from many different interesting angles as the story of his outfitting is told in a "12 Days of Christmas" style. A winner on many fronts.
Welcome Winter by Jill Ackerman
A bright tactile board book with simple rhyming text, perfect for my littlest one, takes us thru what a child first sees, tastes, feels, and touches in wintertime.
White Snow, Bright Snow by Alvin Tresselt
This book is somehow able to capture all the magic, and childhood excitement over that very first winter snow. And the illustrations, with their pale blue and splashes of bright red and yellow, are as captivating and exciting as the text.
