This book is about a girl and her father skiing and on this journey they discover evidence of animals. It goes on to explain how animals survive during the winter under the snowy ground. The animals form their own means to travel under the ground while maintaining their survival. The intriguing visual images do a great job at representing the text. I would use this book in the classroom to teach the children about finding ways to survive in circumstances that may not always seem ideal.

This serenely illustrated book goes on a journey with a girl and her father as the ski over the snow. Unbeknownst to them, there is a world full of animals surviving the winter over and under the snow. The added details in the back of the book about each of the animals featured is a nice touch. ( )

Good science, with clear end notes. Lucid text and appealing pictures. Bravo. More, please? ( )

This is a simply told story about a little girl and her father skiing through the woods, the animals they encounter, and the animals that are hibernating nearby. At the end of the story, there is an author's note about how animals adapt to winter, and also details about each animal in the book. The illustrations are gorgeous.

A very unique story that shares a boys adventure of cross country skiing over the secret world of hibernating animals of the winter. The story share the secret life under the store as the reader gains a perspective of what life is like under the snow.

I love the illustrations and context of the book, as the main character cross country skiing brought back childhood memories of completing the same outdoor winter activities. The illustrator does a wonderful job of capturing a hardwood scenery with white birch trees creating a winter wonderland. This is great story in general as young children do not realize how much life is occurring under the snow.

I would use this story with my students to explore hibernation and the winter season. ( )
