5.5 / 7.0

This wordless picture book has gorgeous illustrations to tell its story of a boy who gets lost traveling in a snowstorm with his father. He ends up making friends with the animals in the woods who share a snack with him and help him find his way back to his dad. :) I loved the details in the the illustrations–the snowflakes and constellations were both made up of animals.
