Here at Rhythm of the Home, we know how important reading is to you and your family. Children are natural lovers of stories, and sharing seasonal books and poems with them can create traditions that can be passed down for generations.
A few of our readers recently shared their favorite winter reads with us, and we think that the collection will delight children young and old. You can find our picks from last winter here, and we wish you and yours a long season of reading fun.
