Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1. Originally published in 1963, this revised and updated series title adds even more allure to its nature lesson with a new full-color format and the inclusion of suggestions for easy ways to feed animals in winter. Davie's brightly colored paintings bring the revised text to life through the realistic portrayal of animals, birds, and butterflies in their natural habitats. In addition, the diagrams of the woodchuck's underground tunnels and illustrations showing a pika and bats asleep in their winter burrow and cave provide concrete examples of the term "hibernation." The rural neighborhood setting featuring houses, gardens, and two children on the first and last pages adds a note of familiarity. This brief, simple introduction to animal survival in winter contains just enough facts to satisfy youngsters' curiosity, and the attractive format makes learning fun.?Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH

From Booklist

Ages 3^-6. This revised edition of an easy-reading title in the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series begins with an Asian American girl and boy in a country neighborhood in the fall. Then the simple text and full-color illustrations show how various animals in that place prepare for winter. Some birds and insects migrate. Bats and woodchucks hibernate. Squirrels gather food and store it. Some don't prepare for winter at all; they must hunt for food all day long. There are some easy practical suggestions for helping animals in winter. A final picture shows the children looking forward to spring. The words are immediate ("His heart beats slowly. He sleeps, sleeps, sleeps. He hibernates"), and the clear, active illustrations will draw new readers to a popular subject. Hazel Rochman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I am a kindergarten teacher and I absolutely love this book. My students loved it too. I teach a unit on hibernation and this book was a great resource. It has great facts and is written for any age group. After I read it to them, my students have read it over and over.

This short book has a few lines of simple text for each two-page illustration about the winter habits of various animals. The author looks at animals like monarch butterflies which fly south, animals that hibernate like the woodchuck, and the animals which continue to forage in the winter like the pika, deer, and mice. The drawings are lovely in detail. This book would be ideal to read to a child at bedtime on a nice winter night.

This is a very interesting book, written in simple text for the youngest reader or listener. It will really open up the dialog concerning hibernation with my students. The illustrations are beautifully done and illustrate all the interesting facts.

This is a great book if your preschooler loves to look and hear about animals and their habits. It is a bit much if your preschooler is not ready to sit and examine things in detail. But for those animal-lovers it is a great book series!

I was looking for books on how animals behaved in each season for younger children ages 3-5. For spring, I went with animal life cycles since many reproduce in spring like birds nesting etc. For fall, I had a book on preparing for winter as well as a book on migrations. So, I got this one to cover animals in winter. I was a bit disappointed that the book rehashes fall animal behaviors like migration, storing food, etc since I already had books on those topic. I understand that since many fall behaviors are preparation for winter, and so they are connected to winter behaviors. But mentioning all those things again made the book feel redundant and made the winter section feel slimmer than the title seemed to indicate. I will probably use the slimmer fall book with a younger crowd and use this longer book with an older crowd. I may add in a few other winter behaviors though like bears raising their babies undergound etc. just to make the content longer for winter.

My students liked this book as it talked about hibernation (sleeping) in terms they could understand. The pictures were drawn well and it was a science lesson that was also able to be cross-curriculum - reading. I enjoyed reading it to my students during our Winter theme week. I would recommend it to any Pre-Kindergarten/Kindergarten teacher for their personal library.

I previously bought "Animals in Fall" for my preschool class. (ages 3 - 4) I used it during our fall theme and was the perfect book to explain a variety of animals and their habits in fall. I didn't read it word for word with my younger group but the pictures were vibrant and the kids were very engaged. I decided to purchase this one for our upcoming winter theme and was not disappointed. Perfect as a read aloud in circle time with my group - and it would also be informative for kids up to about 2nd grade to read on their own. Love the series!

I used this book for a kindergarten read-aloud lesson. It talks about different animals that migrate, hibernate, gather or hunt during the winter to survive. Nice little story to help younger kids understand how animals adapt to the changing winter temperatures. It also has a section at the end that talks about different ideas about how you can feed animals (birds, squirrels) in the winter.
