Winter, Winter, Cold and Snow

Winter, Winter, Cold and Snow
By Sharon Gibson Palermo
Illustrated by Chistina Song
Sleeping Bear Press, 2016. Picture Book.

Each spread asks an animal what it knows about winter: i.e., “Winter, winter, cold and snow; chickadee, chickadee, who do you know?” and the animal answers explaining what another animal does in winter, making a full circle back to the chickadee. Complimentary cut-paper illustrations and simple rhyming text will make this a reread for many children. An appendix at the end gives more detail on the winter habits of the animals mentioned in the book. This book is reminiscent of Bill Martin Jr and Eric Carle’s classic, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
