Snowed In by Barbara M. Lucas and Catherine Stock is a cozy story I happened across at a book sale. I bought a used copy that had been discarded by a school and am so glad I found it!

The story is set in the American West in 1915. A family prepares for being snowed in on their farm for the winter by saying goodbye to the teacher, stocking up at the general store, and getting lots of books from the library. They then enjoy their cozy winter of learning and reading at home after the snow makes it impossible for them to leave their farm. The watercolor illustrations make it a lovely book.

Snowed In is a great book for so many learning topics – homesteading, farming, rural life in the early twentieth century, home education, etc. It would be great for part of a unit on seasons as a way to think about the changing season have impacted families in history. Definitely worth digging up a copy to enjoy in your cozy home!

This is part of my A Month of Cozy Books series!

“We who live in quiet places have the opportunity to become acquainted with ourselves, to think our own thoughts and live our own lives in a way that is not possible for those keeping up with the crowd.”
Laura Ingalls Wilder

“After Laura and Mary had washed and wiped the dishes, swept the floor, made their bed, and dusted, they settled down with their books. But the house was so cozy and pretty that Laura kept looking up at it.”

“They were cosy and comfortable in their little house made of logs, with the snow drifted around it and the wind crying because it could not get in by the fire.”
