I always love a good preschool book list! Every time I make a lesson plan for my kids, I pull together a book list based on whatever theme we are studying. In this post, I’m going to share with you our favorite winter books for preschoolers. Of course, my toddler and kindergartners always listen in!

Winter Stories for Preschoolers
Wonderful winter books for preschoolers to read to them during the cozy winter months!
"Join a brother and sister as they explore nature and take a stroll through their twinkling town, greeting all the signs of the coming season. In a series of conversations with everything from the setting sun to curious deer, they say goodbye to autumn and welcome the glorious first snow of winter in Kenar Pak's Goodbye Autumn, Hello Winter."
"Snow is coming, and it's time to get ready! The squirrel gathers nuts, the geese soar south, and the snowshoe hare puts on its new white coat. But what should the fox do? Each animal advises the fox that its own plan is best, but the fox thinks otherwise—yet it's not until he meets a golden-eyed friend that he finds the perfect way to celebrate the snowfall."
Winter Clothes Books
I know I’m not the only mom with kids who want to wear shorts and sandals in the winter, right? These books can help kids understand proper clothing for wintertime.

"B-R-R-R-R! AH-CHOO! Sneezy the Snowman is cold, cold, cold. To warm up, he drinks cocoa, sits in a hot tub, stands near a warm fire–and melts! But the children know just what to do to build him up again–and make him feel "just right". Hilarity chills the air with playful mixed-media illustrations by Stephen Gilpin as Sneezy attempts to warm himself with some silly results."
"Rhyme follows rhyme as layer after layer of winter clothing ("bunchy and hot, wrinkled a lot, stiff in the knee, and too big for me!") is first put on and then taken off to the relief of the child bundled inside. Clever rebuses and jaunty illustrations make The Jacket I Wear in the Snow especially fun for prereaders and new readers."
We can't leave off The Mitten! When a little boy drops his mitten in the snow, animals find it and use it to take shelter.
