Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This is the 30th book that Selsam and Hunt have written together; but in this particular collaboration it is Chartier's art that steals the show. Well-defined watercolor paintings show a rural house and snowy, forested yard. Everything is still in the first spread, but in successive pictures, readers discover birds, insects, reptiles and mammals. Many of these creatures are attracted to man-made amenities such as the woodpile and the birdfeeder; bats emerge from the attic at night, and raccoons raid the garbage. The story maintains credibility because the animals never appear in incompatible groupings or large numbers. Though not especially inventive, this is a pleasant, lovely book; text and pictures easily shift from the large scene to close-ups and back again. Ages 5-8.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-- After inviting readers into a country landscape, the authors explore the common and often overlooked animal life abundant there. Children are encouraged to look for signs of wild creatures, including many species of birds, reptiles, and rodents; the cocoon of next spring's moth and the eggs of next year's spiders; and a variety of animals such as deer, bats, and raccoons. The full-page watercolor illustrations realistically portray animals in snowy scenes during the day and through the night and are unusually appealing. The last page functions as an index of sorts, alphabetically listing the animals which appear and on which pages they can be found. Preschool and early elementary teachers will find many uses for this book, since the illustrations are large enough to be shared with a group, and the text is sufficiently abbreviated to function as a reader for beginners who have mastered basic skills. Children will look at the winter landscape in a different way after spending time with this treasure. --Ellen Fader, Westport Public Library, Conn.

I first encountered this book in a public library while looking for resources for animals in winter. I fell in love. The text is compelling, and I've used it so many times to reinforce the importance of taking the time to just look. This is no easy task for three year olds, but the book sets just the right tone, and I've been able to remind the children when we are outside, encountering some mystery, to "keep looking." I'm so glad I have been able to add the book to my library.

This book written in 1989 continues to enchant me as a teacher, and now a grandparent. As always, Norman Chartier's illustrations make this book a delight for the eyes. Takes place in the country during the winters snow.. Animals in the winter seeking food, and lovely new england landscapes make this a book for kids and adults alike!

The advertisement said it was in "good" condition. It did not give a clue that there were stickers all over it and a big red word on the front that said DISCARD. I was very disappointed and returned the book. It remains to be seen if I will get a refund. The ad was not honest.

I have ordered many books from Amazon and have been pleased with all of my previous orders.
