Books in the Art Room: Winter

Fall has been fun..but it is time to turn our attentions to winter!  It will be here before we know it.  I do my best to have WINTER books & not CHRISTMAS.  I stay away from holidays as much as possible since they are a day...and seasons last for months (so the art is relevant longer!).  Plus..not everyone celebrates the same holidays...or in some cases..ANY holidays. 

So here are some of the winter books I use in my classroom! 


  1. Using "Snowmen at Night" for my next lesson in 2nd grade. They will be showing space in their compositions using snowmen and analyzing the color choices available to create the illusion of white available for this project. Experiencing our own snow day today so guess we will be starting tomorrow!

  2. These are beautiful books. I will check them out. Thanks for the suggestion.
