A cozy look at the amazing ways animals behave and interact with their environments on a snowy day
When snow falls, we go home where it is warm and safe. What about all those animals out there in the forests and fields? What do they do when snow blankets the ground?
Award-winning science writer Melissa Stewart offers a lyrical tour of a variety of habitats, providing young readers with vivid glimpses of animals as they live out the winter beneath the snow and ice. Constance R. Bergum’s glowing watercolors perfectly capture the wonder and magic that can happen under the snow.

    This book talks about what various animals do during the winter, whether it be hibernation or not. I thought it was just okay. I found myself skimming it.

    A natural history picture-book for younger children, Melissa Stewart's Under the Snow chronicles how various species, from ladybugs to bluegills, survive the cold months of winter. With a simple text of no more than two sentences per page, and engaging watercolor illustrations, it follows the "story" of life under the snow - chipmunks snoozing in their burrows, beavers huddling in their lodges, frogs and turtles resting in the mud - highlighting the fact that, even when the world above seems still and quiet, there is abundant life beneath the surface.Although I would not say that I found this book particularly revelatory, as an adult reader - the information is quite basic - I think that what is there is very well presented, and will probably be quite engrossing for the intended audience. The idea of hidden worlds is always appealing, and never more so than when we are young, and feel that the world itself (the world outside our home) is hidden from us. Just as appealing is Constance R. Bergum's artwork, which ably captures the cold beauty of a world blanketed in snow, and the cozy animal retreats from that world. Highly recommended to younger preschool children with an interest in the natural world, or a love of winter.
