Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Have you ever seen a butterfly in the snow?

Probably not. Butterflies can't survive cold weather, so when winter comes, many butterflies fly to warmer places. They migrate. Woodchucks don't like cold weather either but they don't migrate; they hibernate. Woodchucks sleep in their dens all winter long. Read and find out how other animals cope with winter's worst weather.

Review:

"This brief, simple introduction to animal survival in winter contains just enough facts to satisfy youngsters' curiosity, and the attractive format makes learning fun." School Library Journal

Review:

"The illustrations are unusually attractive, swept clean of extraneous detail, and using a limited palette to heighten the drama: One effective spread shows brown deer and white snow against a stormy green-black sky." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

While watching snow blanket the earth, what child hasn't wondered how the animals will protect themselves from the harsh weather? This book explains ways animals have of coping with inclement weather. Full color.
