Bundle up and don't forget your hats! Winter in the woods is a time for outdoor fun-and exploration, too. The woods are alive with animals-fox, red squirrel, hare-who find a way to survive this coldest season. While the children in the story sled down the hill, readers can learn about the raven and otter-who like to slide, too! While the children skate on the ice, they can learn about the snapping turtle and bluegills who stay busy under the frozen surface. Consie Powell's exuberant verse, accompanied by her crisp paintings, pays tribute to winter, which is surprisingly bursting with life. Her story is also a counting book, and a section in the back includes additional information about the animals discovered each day. Consie Powell, who also wrote Amazing Apples, lives in North Carolina.
