Storytime: In the Snow

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Today we read In the Snow by Sharon Denslow

Winter is almost here insha'Allaah! It's a great time to start reading about snow insha'Allaah. This book, In the Snow, is a delightful story about a child who puts seeds out for the animals during the winter. Throughout the story, children see the animals that are awake during the winter months.

The illustrations are soft and vibrant at the same time. The background features a pristine snowy world punctuated by brightly coloured birds and squirrels of varying shades of brown. A very nice contrast!

The rhyme (the story itself) is short and is not traditional so children may not initially realize that the story rhymes. By varying your reading, you can help children to hear this insha'Allaah.

After reading the story, you may wish to plan for ways you can put seeds out for animals this winter too insha'Allaah.

Children 2-6 years old may enjoy this book insha'Allaah.
