frosted fresh and white

"Over the snow, the world is hushed and white. But under the snow exists a secret kingdom of squirrels and snow hares, bears and bullfrogs, and many other animals that live through the winter safe and warm, awake and busy, under the snow. Discover the wonder and activity that lies beneath winter’s snowy landscape in this magical book."  ~ Chronicle Books

Over and Under the Snow

Over and Under the Snow is a lovely book for kids (& grown ups) who enjoy exploring nature & snow. It follows a little girl and her father as they ski through the woods on their way home. As they ski, they talk about all the animals living beneath the snow, their habitats, and how they survive the winter. Kate Messner is a favorite author of mine who I follow on twitter (@KateMessner), and Christopher Silas Neal's illustrations are beautifully simple and stunning.
