It is winter and it is cold, “snowy,” and “blowy” outside. Windows glow in the evenings, sending golden reflections across the snow. Frost dusts windows and we have to dress warmly before we can go outside. This is a time when we go sledding and make snow angels. We build snowmen and shovel sidewalks. We also get cold in the “nippy” air and have to go inside to warm up. It is a time for hot cocoa and for cozy times sitting in front of a roaring fire.

With just a few words on every page, this seasonal title will give young readers a delightful picture of snowy wintery days.
