Choosing Picture Book Explorers for Winter

If you want to fit your explorations to fit with the seasons of the year, the following are based on books which have a particular connection with winter in the story.

Picture Book Explorers ~ The Mousehole Cat
features a winter storm and ends on Christmas Eve.
To complete this cross-curricular unit study you will need a copy of The Mousehole Cat
 and, among other things, some Coloured Felt and some glitter.


Picture Book Explorers ~ Greyfriars Bobby
features a snowy scene and an old man getting ill from being too long out in the cold.
The old man dies and this could be a sensitive subject for younger children.
To complete this cross-curricular unit study, You will need a copy of Greyfriars Bobby
and, among other things, some watercolour paints.

 

Either of these two Picture Book Explorers would fit in well with a project about winter and The Mousehole Cat even includes Christmas and traditions specific to the area in which the story is set.

Happy Exploring!
