I love a cozy, beautiful picture book! I hope you enjoy this list of 12 winter picture books to cozy up with your babies to read.
Winter picture books may be the coziest of all the books because everyone is cozy and bundled up in them! Lots of layers and warm drinks, candlelight, joyfulness while playing in the snow. Not to mention, in winter we spend a lot of time inside and really just do lots of cuddling. It’s a special time of year with kids. I know it can be hard to be stuck inside a lot because of the cold weather, but there really are many ways to make it a special time as a family.
Some things that we do as family is drinking hot cocoa or other warm drinks together, saving certain shows to only watch in winter, lots of fort building and sleepovers, cozying up to read a lot of books together, eating dinner by candlelight, bundling up together and building snowmen (when we have snow), taking winter hikes, and lastly, having cozy, slow mornings together cuddled up in mama and daddy’s bed.
Organizing Winter Books
Having your winter books sorted and ready to pull out when the season arrives makes it so much easy to actually read them. You can use this blog post to have on hadn’t to organize the books together! We have some book ledges in our library to hold seasonal books to grab easily. These are very similar to the ones we have. Having our winter books out is an easy way to bring the season inside and rally adds winter decor in an effortless way. I feel this way about all of our seasonal books!
I hope this winter book list is a wonderful help and addition to your home library!

Gathering books for a family library is a noble task in this day and age. Giving our children books to fill their days and mind will last them lifetime. Raising children to love books and grow their imagination isn’t easy in our technology-obsessed culture, but it’s a worthwhile endeavor. I love to think of my children reading these books, passed down from me, to their children. Raising another generation to cherish the written word, too!
I hope and pray that this booklist inspires you to fill your home with books!
