Read Right Now! WINTER & SNOW

It’s cold! I know, stating the obvious! A good day to remember this famous storybook quote:

“The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house all that cold, cold, wet day.”

It would be a good day for a visit from The Cat in the Hat to change things up and make a big fun mess!

Since The Cat in the Hat won’t really stop by, here are some books that might help you figure out how to have some fun together on a cold day, and later in the week, on a snowy day!

Eight Nights of Bedtime Stories for Hanukkah

There are so many great Hanukkah books you can read more than one each night! Here are two about clever girls problem solving their way out of Hanukkah trouble.

Little Red Ruthie is the story of a little girl who sets out with a basket full of goodies to help her Bubbe Basha make latkes for Hanukkah. Like the other Little Red you know, she meets a big scary wolf while walking in the woods and the wolf declares, “I am going to eat you up!” Will she be able to convince the wolf that latkes taste a whole lot better than she does?
