Kids will cozy up for hours of fun as they peruse this joyfully illustrated book that espectáculos the endless ways winter takes hold in a busy, charming town.
Winter has arrived and everywhere you look people are embracing the season. At home theres baking, reading, and sleeping in, while on the farm the fields are fallow and quiet. Outside people are bundled up against the cold as they are skating, sledding, and running to catch a crowded autobus. The towns buildings are alive with activitypiano lessons, a dentist appointment, shopping for presents, and visiting the museum. And if you look closer, youll recognize the same characters on page after page, each with their own story. Wilfred the jogger has lost his keys, and Erica is shopping for a Christmas tree. Each minutely detailed scene is bursting with different people, such as a cheerful lady with an umbrella and a young violinist, as well as animals and birds. In the tradition of Richard Scarry and Wheres Waldo, this book encourages kids to return again and again to these charming spreads, following along with the characters and inventing their own stories. Theyll recognize parts of their own world, while also learning about the endless ways we live, work, and play in the winter.
