Voilà l'hiver! 7 French Children's Books About Winter

Most children adore the winter season, and it's easy to understand why – the jolly holiday season, the beautiful snowfall, and the profound experience of watching the world change dramatically around them. Leaves fall from trees, green grass is blanketed in pure white, and animals return to their dens to shelter for the winter.

While the changes of the season are easy to observe, they're not so easy to understand. Here are seven books about winter to help parents introduce their little ones to the season, perfect for kids ages 3-8 who are learning French.

Ages 3-5

Who made these traces? Who are these characters that we never see? Who did what ? Fortunately, a host of clues allow us to guess what may have happened. Open your eyes: it's up to you to imagine the story!

A French translation of a beloved English language children's book. As day turns to night, bright red cardinals flit from branch to branch, deer paw through the snow, and weasels in their white winter coats frolic among the berry-laden holly. Soon all the animals settle down to sleep. In Hiver, simple verse and scenes bring to life the countryside as snow begins to fall. Each pop-up page and lift-up flap reveal the wonder of the season and all the animals as they settle down for the night.

Aaaah! The return of the simple joys of winter: the sound of footsteps in the snow, sledding, and snowmen! Louis built one for himself. And he became friends with it. But now he must take advantage of that friendship, because the sunny days will be coming back very soon...

Voilà l'hiver

Ages 6-8

Winter is here! It's time to put on sweaters and jackets, to wear woolen hats on your head, and to play in the cold. The landscape changes, the air is icy. Some would like to fly to Africa, others prefer to stay warm next to their mothers. Sometimes we hibernate under the duvet. In this beautiful cardboard book, children will learn about the small animals that are preparing, like a child, to enter the winter.
