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.
"Through intriguing cutaway scenes, many illustrations also reveal the animals scurrying about or resting underground and beneath the snow and ice. This lively picture book offers a fresh perspective on the animals-in-winter theme."--Booklist
"Bissonette’s prose sparkles even as she imparts factual information"--Publisher's Weekly, starred
"Hourigan’s joyful illustrations will encourage children to take a closer look at the world around them."--School Library Journal
