Chilly Tales for Winter Fun

Here are a few books that you can share with your toddler to experience the frosty season of winter.  Enjoy!

 

Little Bea and The Snowy Day by  Daniel Roode.

Little Bea and her friends enjoy a day of snow angels, skating, and even making a new snow friend.

Listening to the Past

 

 

The books I have chosen for this week are about several amazing women.  Some, you may have heard of before, but my guess is  that many of the names will be new to you.

 We can be inspired by their strength and learn from their mistakes.  They lived their lives during different parts of history but each one has a story to share. Enjoy. 

Twilight Tales

As the sun set and twilight approaches children begin to realize that bedtime is near. Many chose to wander about in scattered fashion as they dillydally their time away. Thus, the art of procrastination can be achieved at a surprisingly early age.

I advise parents’ that they can support their child’s needs by setting and staying with a bedtime routine. The American Academy of Pediatrics states, "it's almost impossible to overstress the importance of a calm, orderly bedtime routine."  Creating an evening story-time promotes a tranquil environment for your young child, consequently; supporting their need  them unwind from the day.

 

The Path of a German Folktale

 The German folk-tale, Hänsel and Gretel  was first created by Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm. Over the years, their work been passed down and translated in many languages. They are now known simply as "The Brothers Grimm." The selection below is just a small sample of the adaptations of Hänsel and Gretel which have been created over the years.  I hope you enjoy discovering or revisiting this classic tale.

Siku, the baby polar bear in Denmark, has stolen hearts around the world.  Both children and adults alike can not get enough of this cute little cub.
