Snowy goodness. Perfect for little readers who love a little bit of non-fiction learning mixed with a great story.,
This review is from: Over and Under the Snow (Hardcover)
Snowy banks filled with hidden life hide within the pages of Over and Under the Snow by Kate Messner. As a young girl and her father ski across the fields of packed snow she discovers that there's more to the winter than simple white wintry landscapes. From bears to mice to bullfrogs the number of animals hiding beneath the surface are almost too many to count. Follow along on this young girl's journey into a magically real world hiding just under your feet.
Over and Under the Snow has been a delightful story to share with not only my four year old son, but my two year old daughter as well. They both love discover the animals hidden beneath the layers of snow and then flipping to the back of the book to learn more about them in the animal guide listing. For my son it's definitely all about the learning aspect of it. He's in a stage where he wants to soak up every little bit of knowledge he can about things and adding the magic of the snow made it even that much more interesting for him. As for my daughter, she just loves the fun of finding all the animals hidden in the snow. Now, if only we lived near the snow again!
Kate Messner clearly is an author who loves nature and sharing that love through brilliantly written books for children of all ages. In Over and Under the Snow Messner brings to life the hidden world resting just beneath our feet during the snowy wintry months. Begin sharing and teaching about these fantastic creatures at an early age by introducing the magical journey of a little girl and her father. Our family has loved discovering our "favorite" animals at winter time and thanks to Messner's additional reading sources that are listed in the back of the book our discoveries will continue happening. Over and Under the Snow is an excellent addition to any young reader's library and one that will be loved by the entire family!
