The Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson - Great clear, large illustrations. A bear is hibernating in his cave for the Winter when a whole bunch of different animals seek refuge from the cold and in the process throw a little party. A little bit of a longer book so I would recommend this as your intro book at storytime. A nice, repetitive warm story.

Snow Rabbit, Spring Rabbit by Il Sung Na - During Winter some animals migrate, some store food, but when the snow melts everyone knows that Spring is here. A simple fast read with beautiful illustrations. A good book to use for a Spring themed story time.

When it Starts to Snow by Phillis Gershator - Ever wonder what animals do when it snows? This book is cute with a simple repetitive rhyming scheme.

One Mitten by Kristine O'Connell George- A really fun book about all the great ways you can use your imagination with a mitten.

A Kitten Tale by Eric Rohmann- Super adorable illustrations!!!! Four kittens are eagerly anticipating their first snowfall in this sweet and simple story. A real delightful read.

The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats-Captures the magic of snowfall to a young child. A fun look at all the great things you can do outside in the snow.

Duck Skates by Lynne Berry- Little ducks get dressed and play in the snow...nuff said

When it Starts to Snow by Phillis Gershator- Goes through what different animals do and where they take refuge when it starts to snow. Cute pictures.

Whose Footprints? by Molly Coxe- A great guessing game to play with kids. Before you read this book print out the footprints of the animals featured in the book and a picture of the animal. Put them on a feltboard and see if the kids can match the track to the animal. Then read the book and see if they can again match up the animal with the print, only this time it is a track in the snow.

The Mitten by Jan Brett- A classic with rich, beautiful illustrations.
