Winter is such a lovely time of year. Once the holiday season is over, we settle in to the slows days of winter. Here are a few things that I’ve gathered to share with you today, a winter round up of sorts.
Reading is another lovely winter pastime. Here are some great picture books to read with your little ones. I’m also planning to share another set of winter picture books here soon.
