8 Winter Fantasy Books for Middle Grade Readers

Are you ready for some cozy reading for yourself, or looking for something seasonal for the kids in your life? This list is a mix of Christmas, Yule, and just snowy adventures. (I was unable to find any middle grade Hanukkah books, whether fantasy or realistic, so I guess I’ll be sticking with recommending Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins to those looking for Hanukkah magic.)

Most of them are available for download from public libraries through either Hoopla or Libby, and hopefully you’re able to request them from your library in print as well if that’s your preference. As usual, links are to my full reviews.

Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu – winter – Ebook and audiobook on hoopla

The Forgotten Girl by India Hill Brown – Christmas – audiobook on hoopla

The Girl Who Speaks Bear by Sophie Anderson – winter – ebook on Libby

Greenglass House by Kate Milford – Christmas – ebook on Libby, audiobook on hoopla

Midwinter Witch by Molly Knox Ostertag – Yule – graphic novel

When the Sea Turned to Silver by Grace Lin – winter – ebook and audiobook on Libby

Winterfrost by Michelle Houts – Christmas – ebook on hoopla 

Winterhouse by Ben Guterson. Illustrated by Chloe Bristol  – Christmas – ebook on Libby, audiobook on hoopla

As always, if you have suggestions for this list, please let me know!
