Reading Together

Snow

Posted on: January 14, 2010

I hate snow. 

It’s wet and cold and causes me a great deal of stress when I have to drive in it. 

There are a couple of books I like to read aloud regardless of my feelings towards snow. 

My favorite is:

Snow by Cynthia Rylant

 

Her text makes me actually feel warm while reading about snow.  And the illustrations of the snowflakes are beautiful (by Lauren Stringer).

I have been doing some snow/winter storytimes and have found some great new songs and fingerplays on Mel’s Desk here. Thanks!

I did change the words she had to the following:

Hat, scarf, coat and books (tune: Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes)

Hat, scarf, coat and boots, coat and boots

Hat, scarf, coat and boots, coat and boots

In Wintertime we dress like that

Hat, scarf, coat and boots, coat and boots
