When it’s cold outside and you’re looking for a cozy place to curl up with a good book, an igloo might just be the perfect setting. And what better way to celebrate the season than by reading one (or all!) of these great books about igloos?
In The Igloo (Lift-the-Flap Book), by Hans Wilhelm, little ones can lift the flaps to help two penguins build their very own igloo. Once it’s finished, they can peek inside to see the penguins snuggled up together, fast asleep.
In An Igloo Made out of Lotion, by Joshua Sloth, a little boy tries to build an igloo using his mother’s lotion. Needless to say, it doesn’t quite turn out the way he’d hoped.
In Igloos (First Discovery Books), by Gallimard Jeunesse, young readers will learn all about how igloos are built and what life is like inside one. This book is part of a series that also includes titles on topics like the Arctic, animals, and the environment.
If your child is more interested in the animals that live in the Arctic, check out Igloos (Animal Homes), by Heather Miller. This book features photographs of different animals and their homes, including igloos, dens, burrows, and more.
Finally, no list of books about igloos would be complete without Igloos (Welcome to My World), by Maryann Cocca-Leffler. In this charming picture book, a little girl tells us all about her life in an igloo, from the time she gets up in the morning to the time she goes to bed at night.
So whether your child is interested in learning about how igloos are made or just wants to curl up with a cozy book on a cold day, one (or more!) of these titles is sure to please.
