Grab a cup of cocoa and enjoy a few of these classic Winter books for kids this week! I don’t know about you but one of the first things that comes to my mind when winter hits is cuddling up under the blankets with a good book or two. And it’s an especially great for …
I love sharing classic books with my kids, especially ones that I enjoyed as a child.
So I’ve started a quarterly series on great Vintage Kids Books to feed my need for nostalgic reading 🙂 If you missed our summer list, you can find out which books made the cut on our Vintage Summer Reads post.

I’m a huge fan of kids lit! I know, no surprise there if you’ve read even a few of my posts. But even more, I’m a big lover of classic, vintage kids books — the really great stories that we all heard as kids or may have even been read by our parents & grandparents in their childhood.

Do you ever remember playing in the kitchen while your mom or grandmother were baking? The wonderful smells and the fun conversations not to mention the amazing treats that came out of the oven!
I know that technology and modern conveniences are great things but sometimes I really want to kids to experience life without all the bells and whistles. So I thought I would ‘re-create’ a day in Grandma’s Kitchen as part of our Discover & Explore December Activities linky.
