Lovely, vintage illustrations with a simple story about what different animals do in the winter, where they go and about hibernation.

This book is all about different animals in winter. It talks about how they get food in the winter and would be a great read aloud to talk about why animals hibernate and how they get food in the winter. It also has great illustrations about what animals do in the winter time.

21 months - we enjoyed learning about Animals and how they deal with winter survival. Great illustrations and basic information. We will borrow this one again next year when we talk about winter. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0064451658, Paperback)

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.
