When it’s too cold to go outside, a great way to pass the time in the winter is to sit on the couch with a good book. We’ve shared five of our favorite classic books to help you get through the winter!
The Very Hungry Caterpillar:
This book is about a caterpillar who eats his way into becoming a beautiful butterfly. It’s a great book for young children because it can help them learn and identify various fruits and vegetables. The images in the book are very well done making it visually pleasing for everyone.
An older book, Strega Nona is a comical tale about an old witch doctor and her assistant Big Anthony. Big Anthony often finds himself in trouble and Strega Nona has to come save the day. If you can’t get enough of Strega Nona, don’t worry, there are nine more Strega Nona spin offs to get through.
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie:
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is a story about a mouse that keeps on asking for more things. It’s a cute tale and a fun read for everyone, although be prepared, you may be craving cookies before it’s over.
The Rainbow Fish:
Like the Very Hungry Caterpillar, Rainbow Fish is another beautifully illustrated picture book. This book is great because it puts a fun spin on the lesson of learning to share. So not only are you reading a fun story with your little one, it’s paired with an important lesson.
Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus:
This book is one of the funniest on the list. A stubborn and relentless Pigeon insists on driving a bus and eventually gets his way. It received a Caldecott honor and was inducted into the Picture Book Hall of Fame. If you like this book there are other spin-offs to keep you entertained.
