Winter Reading Ideas for Children and Mama

Winter Reading Ideas for Children and Mama

With long cold nights what better than to snuggle up with a good book? Here are some suggestions- past and present- to give you some inspiration.

    Lets start with some seasonal reads:

  1. I saw Three Ships by Elizabeth Goudge. This short little chapter book is perfect for the run up to Christmas. Light hearted, and beautifully written. Fantastic for all the family to enjoy.
  2. The Bakers Dozen: A St Nicholas Tale by Aaron Shepard. A lovely picture book with beautiful illustrations. This is a favourite with the boys.
  3. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickons. Seasonal favourite, for those who want something a bit more meaty.
  4. The Greatest Gift by Ann Voskamp. A beautiful Christmas devotional for adults. Voskamp’s writing is simply perfect for Christmas.
  5. The Christmas Angel by Abbie Farwell Brown. This is one recommended by Beka, who has really enjoyed it. It also has the added bonus that it is free to download on Kindle :).
  6. Now for some general books great for winter.

  7. Own Your Life by Sally Clarkson. This is a great book to start the New Year. Full of encouragement to inspirational living.
  8. Last winter we read through the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit. Both seem rather fitting for a wintry read aloud.
  9. The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. Like the Tolkien classics this just seems fitting to read on long winter nights.
  10. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. This is my current read. And the bleakness of Yorkshire is better appreciated in winter, than summer I feel. A good one to pick up over the holiday season.
  11. The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder. This book sees Laura in her mid-teens, and the town facing a desperate fight for survival in an unusually harsh winter.
  12. White Boots by Noel Streatfield. Beka has read most of the Streatfield books, this one is on her winter reading list!

This list is in no particular order. Hopefully there will be some inspiration.
