    I very much enjoy reading books about music, songs, etc to my children. It is one more way for me to share music with them as I am not able to sing/play an instrument well. Thanks for the suggested titles. Also, Snow Music sounds like a fun one to read aloud!

  2. I am not in the family read aloud group, but wanted to thank you for the sharing of three good books. I know Snow Music & it is delightful, but the other two sound good also. Amazing how Cinderella just keeps moving on! I am participating in the Award Challenge too. Fun to look for books in the past that have won awards, & to look for those winners all over the world, too.

  3. We’ve been reading snow books this week. Snow is usually common in Rhode Island but it was a long time coming this year. We had over 8 inches at our house last weekend and spent Sunday afternoon sledding. Fun times!!

  4. It has been a strange winter here in Maine too this year. No snow at all right now but the forecast for tomorrow looks promising. Thanks for sharing these books. I can’t wait to check them and the other entries out! Happy reading. 🙂

  5. Snow Music just LOOKS beautiful.

    But! The Really Awful Musicians sounds like it would be SUCH a hit in our house that I’m anxious to run out and find it! (Poot. I just checked online and our library doesn’t have it. Going to stick it on my Amazon wishlist. It just looks too fabulous!)

  6. These are lovely picture books indeed! I echo the comments noted above. We had a fractured fairy tale theme a year ago. Had I known about this Jazzy Cinderella, we would have included it in our list. I also like that you have a thing for snow-themed picture books. I reviewed two wordless ones last year which you might like to check out – the classic picture book by Raymond Briggs, The Snowman (http://wp.me/pDlzr-10a) and Fernando Krahn’s The Self-made Snowman (http://wp.me/pDlzr-10O).

  7. As my children grew older, I got away from reading to them and expected them to read to themselves. The homeschool community encouraged me to read to them again…and it is now a part of the day that we all look forward to!
