I have been promoting the joys of winter reading in my library this week. I’ve turned the library into a winter wonderland (complete with Harry Potter snowflakes and snow decorations, a fake fireplace, winter books galore, and blankets) and have invited students to wear pajamas on their library day. After they choose books to read over vacation, they sit on one of the blankets and do some cozy reading. I even have “crackling fireplace” sounds playing (which make them think the fake fireplace is magic). I have found this to create such an amazing atmosphere of excitement and “book joy” this week and I think your household would love it too!
I’ll be sharing my favorite winter reads over the coming days for adults and kids alike.
‘Tis the season to be reading!
