Winter is here, and it is a great time to stock your shelves with some winter clothes books for preschoolers. Hats, mittens, scarves, and more!
I love to use picture books to introduce and/or celebrate the seasons. Add these picture books to your upcoming winter preschool activities.
Winter Clothes Books for Preschoolers
Below, I’ve featured just a handful of picture books that will help your preschoolers get excited about winter days!
You should be able to find them at your local library or bookstore. If you can’t find them locally, you can click each image cover to purchase them on Amazon.
Snow Clothes – What can you do in the winter? Make a snow hill, snowball, snow fort, snow person, and snow angel.
Froggy Gets Dressed – Rambunctious Froggy hops out into the snow for a winter frolic but is called back by his mother to put on some necessary articles of clothing.
The Jacket I Wear in the Snow – Rhyme follows rhyme as layer after layer of winter clothing (“bunchy and hot, wrinkled a lot, stiff in the knee, and too big for me!”) is first put on and then taken off to the relief of the child bundled inside.
The Hat – When Lisa’s woolen stocking flies off the clothesline, Hedgie finds it and pokes his nose in. He tries to pull it out, but the stocking gets stuck on his prickles — and the fun begins.
A Hat for Minerva Louise – The other chickens hate snowy mornings. But not Minerva Louise! To her a snowy day—like everything else—is an adventure. But this chilly, chipper hen needs something to keep her warm. What she finds—and how she finds it—will keep young readers cackling.
The Mitten Tree – One snowy day an elderly woman, Sarah, watches children gathering at the bus stop. While they never seem to notice her, she notices them, especially one little boy who has no mittens. That night, Sarah knits the boy a pair of cozy mittens and places them on the blue spruce tree for him to discover.
Under My Hood I Have a Hat – Wanting to go out and play in the newly fallen snow, a young girl finds her simple outing quite a project in itself after her mother begins to bundle her up in many layers of clothing, including two sweaters, boots, a coat, a muffler, mittens, and more!
One Mitten – When a child discovers that she only has one mitten, her imagination is set into motion as she thinks of all the creative things that can be done with just one mitten, but when the second one is found, the young girl comes up with a whole new collection of creative ideas.
Little Owl’s Orange Scarf – Little Owl loves many things, including his tree house in City Park, riding his scooter, and eating ice cream. But he does not love the new orange scarf his mommy makes him wear. It’s too long. It’s too itchy. It’s too . . . orange!
A New Coat for Anna – Even though there is no money, Anna’s mother finds a way to make Anna a badly needed winter coat.
Shall I Knit You a Hat?: A Christmas Yarn – To protect his ears from the cold and snow, Mother Rabbit knits Little Rabbit a hat. He loves his hat so much, he and his mother make them for all of his friends.
Extra Yarn – A young girl and her box of magical yarn transform a community in this stunning picture book. With spare, gently humorous illustrations and a palette that moves from black-and-white to a range of color, this modern fairy tale has the feel of a new classic.
