Have a “Hot-Cocoa-Class-Day” and Huddle Up for a Wonderful Winter Book!

Each book featured per grade level is appropriate for independent reading and selected based on standard reading skills. Very fun to read together as a class too, especially with cups of hot cocoa!

Pip and Posy The Snowy Day by Axel Scheffler

Two friends set off to enjoy their snow day until they can’t agree on what head to give their snowman: mouse or rabbit ears?! Conflict, resolution modeled in simple language.

One by one, forest animals show up on the door steps of Percy, the park keeper. After letting each one inside to warm up, his little hut gets quite full. During  a scare from a mole entering through his floorboards, each animal finds a hiding spot and stays there nice and cozy for the night.
