Description

This Caldecott Medal winter book will leave readers warm, cozy, and satisfied after reading this story, evoking many fond memories in both the young and old. As the leaves fall from the trees, the wind blows a bit harder, and the days turn shorter and shorter, we know that winter is on its way. The woodland animals begin to prepare for the cold weather in their own ways: the chipmunks get ready for a nice, cozy sleep; the geese fly south toward sunshine and blue skies; raccoons scurry for shelter. But they're (who? Just the raccoons?) in for a nice surprise when they realize that they have some "friends" nearby who leave some yummy food for them to eat.

Anyone who loves the velvet white of winter and the joys of watching the first snowflakes fall will cherish this book. The authors have combined a simple text with full color, as well as black-and-white illustrations that create a quiet atmosphere throughout. For readers who are concerned with animals and the environment, this is a good introduction to how animals deal with the changing seasons, and how humans can appreciate the beauty and splendor of nature.
