Walking in a Winter Wonderland: Stories to Share as the Snow Falls

The Snow Queen
Margaret Tarrant
Welcome to my first blog post of 2014. My thanks to all of you who follow my blog and particularly to those who share their insights whether by commenting on the blog, or sharing a note via email or Facebook. Your comments always add warmth to my day and I am blessed by the friendships and connections I have made through this medium. I wish everyone a New Year filled with all of the joy and blessings your heart can hold.

Today, in my area of Massachusetts, we are under a blizzard warning and the snow has been falling steadily since this morning.  I have lived my whole life here and yet I am still struck by the stunning beauty of a snowfall.  Here are some tales to celebrate the season.


Davy Crockett and the Frozen Dawn - USA

The Ice King and His Wonderful Grandchild - Dutch

The Little Daughter of the Snow - Russia
The Long Winter - Canada

Princess Miranda and Prince Hero - Poland

The Snow, the Crow and the Blood - Ireland

The Snow Maiden - Russia

The Snow Queen – A Tale in Seven Stories by Hans Christian Anderson
The Snow Tomb - Japan

Snow Woman - Japan - Jackie Baldwin shares a compilation of books, resources and stories on winter and the winter solstice.

Snow - We are told no two snowflakes are alike, but now you can see just how different these remarkable gifts of nature truly are. This site is a wonderful addition to any math or science program.
