Snowy Reads: One Mitten, a Snowy Day and an Owl Moon
|January 20, 2010||Posted by Miss Shari under Toddlers & Twos, Winter|
This wintry January week has brought about a few frosty tales for twos, threes, fours and more. Tuesday for Twos on Allentown Children’s Books Examiner, featured Kristine O’Connell George’s One Mitten, a cute little books, with short rhymes and detailed illustrations. Perfect for your little twos. See the full article review for One Mitten on Examiner.com.
Two other winter favorites included a spotlight on The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats and Owl Moon by Jane Yolen. Both of these classics have won the Randolph Caldecott medal for most distinguished picture book. Seemingly very fitting with this week’s announcements of the American Library Association Youth Media Awards, including the 2010 Caldecott Medal winner.
Everyone remembers and cherishes little Peter’s adventures in The Snowy Day, kind of makes you wish for a snowfall. Not to mention, Owl Moon’s chilly and descriptive tale of a winter night owling in the woods. For more on these stories and activities read the full article commentary.
