As the leaves start to fall and the weather cools down, the best way to keep warm is to cozy up with a good book. We've bundled up a bunch of winter-themed reads just for you! Grab a fuzzy blanket and a mug of hot chocolate, then snuggle up with your family and enjoy some of our favorite titles.

A Winter Walk in the City

Cathy Goldberg Fishman

Take a walk through the city in winter and experience the sights, sounds, colors, and smells of the multitude of different holidays we celebrate this season. From Hanukkah and Christmas to Mawlid al-Nabi and Chinese New Year, everyone has a reason to celebrate. With simple rhymes, a counting pattern, and stunning papercraft art reminiscent of Ezra Jack Keats, this diverse board book is the perfect introduction to the cultural melting pot that makes the city so special.
