#CybilsAwards Book Lists: Snow!

It is snowing and cold today, as I put this together, and as I was scrolling through the lists of nominated books, I noticed a handful of snowy and wintery books. It seemed a good day to feature them!


The Snow Dancer
by Addie Boswell, illustrated by Mercè López
Two Lions

“I loved this story of making your own way and fitting in and sharing your gifts with others, all amid the snow, told in beautiful illustrations and lyrical writing.” – Deb Nance


Snow Day in May
by Christine Evans, illustrated by Patrick Corrigan
Albert Whitman & Company

“Great for an early chapter book with a little magic and adventure. Fun series for an emerging reader! Also includes some diverse friends and a mom who works as a pilot, so not wholly traditional or boring.” – Brooke


A Long Road on a Short Day
by Gary D. Schmidt and Elizabeth Stickney, illustrated by Eugene Yelchin
Clarion Books

“The enchanting title, of the long journey Samuel and his father must make on a short winter day, encapsulates their journey to trade Papa’s knife for a milk cow for Mama. With a “Little House on the Prairie” feel, boyish dreams of wonderful things, and a little sacrifice, it’s a sweet little read.” – Brooke


The Sea in Winter
by Christine Day

“I enjoyed “The Sea in Winter.” It is a quick, simple, but beautiful, heartwarming story about hope and family, with many interesting facts. Overall, I enjoyed it and thought that a reader of any age would appreciate it.” – Rajiv at Rajiv’s Reviews


Snow Birds

” I partial to birds and poetry so I enjoyed this collection. The idea behind it is unique.” – Bridget at What is Bridget Reading?
