It is wintertime, and outdside snow is falling. As the flakes go “swirling, whirling” around them, two children go skating on the frozen lakes. There are hills to sled down, snowmen to build, and snowball fights to enjoy.

Of course all these snow filled activities lead to “rosy cheeks, runny nose, cold, wet mittens, frozen toes.” It is time to sit by the fire with a mug of hot chocolate in hand, and “cozy blankets” to snuggle under.

The simple rhyming text in this seasonal picture book perfectly captures the adventures and special moments that children have during a snowy winter.
