Over the snow, the world is hushed and white, but under the snow is a secret world of squirrels and snowshoe hares, bears and bullfrogs, and many others who live outside in the woods during the winter.
Beautifully, lyrical, and informative. This book is interesting and engaging, and makes a non-fiction topic (ecology, biology) engaging enough to feel like fiction. It’s a great way to help kids think about the world around them!
