Favorite Winter Books

Happy New Year, ManaFriends!

We don’t know about you, but after the holidays, it’s easy for us to fall into the “winter blues.” We’re cooped up inside; colds and the flu seem to spread like wildfire; and the next few months stretch ahead like one chilly, gray blur. Sound familiar? 

Yes, the winter blues are a bummer. But it doesn’t have to be that way! We’re focusing instead on all of our favorite things about winter: the cold, invigorating air. Sledding and snow sports. Hot cocoa and apple cider. Cuddling up with a movie—or better yet, a good book!

Below is a list of our favorite picture books celebrating the winter season—a blend of classics and new releases, award winners and under-the-radar fliers. Grab a few, build yourself an igloo (indoors, maybe), and get ready for some fun winter reading!
