JUVENILE FICTION / Concepts / Seasons
A sweet poetic children’s book celebrating the vibrancy of life in winter.

Though a forest may be blanketed in snow or a lake frozen over, families who enjoy the outdoors in winter, happily bundled up to play in the energizing weather, know that wildlife is still teeming there.

When winter comes,
and deep snow blankets the woods,
and ice forms cold and smooth on the lakes,
thick enough for us to skate on,
some people think our woods are empty.
But we know better.

The fallen log that is used to hide behind in a snowball fight is a shelter for tree frogs, caterpillars, ladybugs, and slugs. The drifts of fallen snow that families snowshoe across have winding tunnels made by meadow mice in search of seeds and bark. The towering trees families ski among shield birds from winter winds.

When Winter Comes celebrates the joy of playing and exploring in the outdoors during the winter months.

Series Overview: When Seasons Come celebrates families exploring nature and appreciating wildlife in each season.

Many books for children that celebrate the outdoors focus on play in the spring and summer months. This book embraces the joy of being outdoors in winter.



Erin Hourigan’s beautiful illustrations share the fun of winter play, such as snowball fights, snowshoeing, skiing, sledding, and ice fishing. They also capture winter wildlife habitats in a way that will encourage children to explore the outdoors during this season.

AIMÉE M. BISSONETTE is the author of three picture books, North Woods Girl, Miss Colfax’s Light, and Aim for the Skies: Jerrie Mock and Joan Merriam Smith’s Race to Complete Amelia Earhart’s Quest.
