Books for When You are Snowed In

Well we've certainly had some interesting weather over the last few days.  Over a foot of snow in many places which is more than I can remember falling in a long time.  While I was huddled up at home staying warm, it made me think of some great books out there about being snowed in...

Help! I'm a Prisoner in the Library by Eth Clifford

Two girls spend an adventurous night trapped inside the public library during a terrible blizzard.

The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder

After an October blizzard, Laura's family moves from the claim shanty into town for the winter, a winter that an Indian has predicted will be seven months of bad weather.

Blizzard!: A Survive! Story by Jake Maddox

They were supposed to be attending a volunteer dinner in their honor, but instead, Owen and Gray have been stranded in the middle of a raging blizzard. Once the storm subsides, the boys decide to try to find their way back to civilization. But with no food or water, freezing temperatures, and no help in sight, both boys begin to lose hope. Can they make it safely home, or will the frozen elements become too much for them to handle?
