A cozy look at the amazing ways animals behave and interact with their environments on a snowy day
When snow falls, we go home where it is warm and safe. What about all those animals out there in the forests and fields? What do they do when snow blankets the ground?
Award-winning science writer Melissa Stewart offers a lyrical tour of a variety of habitats, providing young readers with vivid glimpses of animals as they live out the winter beneath the snow and ice. Constance R. Bergum's glowing watercolors perfectly capture the wonder and magic that can happen under the snow.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In the heart of winter, a deep layer of snow blankets fields and forests, ponds and wetlands. So begins Stewart's lyrical portrait of the hidden world beneath the snow. Ladybugs and snakes are protected in the crevices of a stone wall. Chipmunks in burrows, butterflies in brush piles, insects in rotting logs, and a host of other animals take refuge from the harsh cold. Bergum's watercolor illustrations painted in panels suggest the passage of time and include close-up insets of wildlife in various habitats. The words and art combine to give readers glimpses underneath the snow and in some cases under the ground divulging secrets of survival for many species as they get ready for spring. Many of the facts will wow children, such as the frog that is frozen solid yet still alive, and pique interest to read more. A great companion book for Joyce Sidman's Song of the Waterboatman and Other Pond Poems (2005), this beautiful picture book will complement the science curriculum and also makes for a great read aloud.--Austin, Patricia Copyright 2009 Booklist"
