It's never felt quite right --  rounding up winter (read "snowy winter") books every year.  I just figured out why:  Because we only see snow when it's nearly spring!  Because in spring, plans to drive to the snow don't get cancelled due to a storm, we don't have to think about putting chains on the tires, and everyone will stay warm.  And that's when all those snow-blanketed stories make sense to us! 

So after a snowy March weekend of lively sledding, creative Snowmama & Baby building, industrious fort constructing, mischevious snowball throwing, boisterous game playing by the fire with friends, we came home to enjoy some new favorites (for us!).  Viva "Winter!"

Did I mention "snow eating?"

...and snow break-taking?
