Winter Reads for Your Kids

With a new year, comes new goals. I had a conversation with my kids about their goals for 2022 and they actually mentioned finding new books that they look forward to reading. With everything going on in the world currently, we are stuck inside for a lot of time these days and I know what you’re thinking- yes, it is actually possible that technology can get boring after some time. My kids enjoy movies and games just as much as every other child, but there comes a point where these things get to be boring and they need a new activity to jump to.

For us, reading is an important activity we like to encourage our children to partake in. I have some pretty creative kids, so I like to keep their imaginations fresh. We are beginning to go through our bookshelves to create space for the reads we want this new year and of course, I am here to share the books on their lists with all of you! I must say, it is wild how many books are readily available these days. It’s not just the library, Amazon Prime is at our fingertips.

As my kids get older, they get a lot more school work and assigned reading, and I want to make sure they have books at home that they actually want to spend time reading. I don’t want them to associate reading as being something they absolutely need to do for school, but as something that can be fun still. They loved it as little kids and my job is to make sure that doesn’t change!

We worked together to put together a list of books that are perfect Winter reads for all ages. This list has books that are hot off the press, newly published. I do love a good classic, though. But it’s so fun to find brand new books that the kids can talk about with their friends. I would love to know what books your children are into this year, leave recommendations below!
