January Books!

 

Any book can be read at any time. But some books are particularly suited for a certain time of year. Here are my recommendations, both picturebooks (P) and novels (N), for January. For my selections I focused on the weather, on new beginnings and just books that felt like… well, January books:

  • I Stood Upon A Mountain, Aileen Fisher (P)
