Aniamls in Winter
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. Gr. K - 2

Snow
No one thinks one or two snowflakes will amount to anything. Not the man with the hat or the lady with the umbrella. Not even the television or the radio forecasters. But one boy and his dog have faith that the snow will amount to something spectacular, and when flakes start to swirl down on the city, they are also the only ones who know how to truly enjoy it. This playful depiction of a snowy day and the transformation of a city is perfectly captured in simple, poetic text and lively watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations.  Gr. Pre-K - K 
 
Snow is a 1998 New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year and a 1999 Caldecott Honor Book.

Snowflake Bentley
From the time he was a small boy, Wilson Bentley saw snowflakes as small miracles. And he determined that one day his camera would capture for others the wonder of the tiny crystal. Bentley's enthusiasm for photographing snowflakes was often misunderstood in his time, but his patience and determination revealed two important truths: no two snowflakes are alike; and each one is startlingly beautiful. His story is gracefully told and brought to life in lovely woodcuts, giving children insight into a soul who had not only a scientist's vision and perseverance but a clear passion for the wonders of nature. "Of all the forms of water the tiny six-pointed crystals of ice called snow are incomparably the most beautiful and varied." -- Wilson Bentley. SNOWFLAKE BENTLEY won the 1999 Caldecott Medal.  Gr. 1-2

Clever rebuses and jaunty illustrations make The Jacket I Wear in the Snow especially fun for prereaders and new readers.  Gr. Pre-K - K

It's Winter
This companion to It's Fall (2001) and It's Spring (2002, both Millbrook) is an exemplary exploration of a season. From the first spread, readers view an enthusiastic girl who delves into the pleasures and treasures of winter. The arrival of new snow overnight transforms the world around her into a rollicking playground. She takes a pleasant walk with her dog and describes the wonders of nature when bats, bees, and several other animals hibernate; active life goes on underneath a frozen pond, and birds and deer are about. At night, Orion takes precedence in the sky. Soon the days grow longer, the sun feels stronger, and there is a hint of change, but there is still time to sled and hope for another snow. Rich textures bring depth to the lively scenes and the double-page spreads will give young readers much to ponder.  Gr. 1-2
