Animals in Winter by Henrietta Bancroft and Richard G. Van Gelder with pictures by Helen K. Davie will answer any questions young readers have about what wild creatures do during the coldest season of the year. Some creatures, like birds and butterflies, migrate to warmer climates while others, like bats and woodchucks, hibernate until the snow thaws. Some animals like foxes and rabbits must find food throughout the season when food is scarce.
The lively pictures and diagrams aid in the reader's understanding of the informative text, so that even the smallest of biologists can learn about the hardest season for animal survival. The authors were really thoughtful in their writing making the information easy enough for preschoolers to appreciate yet informative enough for older kids to be interested as well. There are also tips for how we can help wildlife find food during winter.
