World Snow Day
The CBC Holidays Series explores stories that relate to specific holidays so that readers of all ages can celebrate in the best way… with a good book!
Over the weekend was World Snow Day, celebrating the winter weather that creates a wonderland of ice flurries in the sky. From snowball fights and fortresses to snow angels and snowmen, we can create so many fun activities to do outside. And if there’s no snow where you are, then just mix together some baking soda and water to make your own. Let’s enjoy the snow today with some fun books. ❄️
