Review

"This gentle winter tale is perfect for lulling young ones to sleep."  —Your Big Backyard, National Wildlife Federation children's nature magazine, which selected The Animals' Winter Sleep as its Book-of-the-Month for December 2008



"Captures the wonder of unique animal adaptions in winter in a way that will appeal to young children. The text is . . . rich with real natural history woven in."  —Teresa Mitchell, education director, Vermont Institute of Natural Science


"Bold brilliant illustrations depict accurate natural history. . . . Young children will discover where 13 familiar animal species sleep. Extra information in the back of the book extends the story and encourages interactions with the illustrations. A must on your bedtime story list!  —Helen Fey Fischel, associate director of education, Delaware Nature Society


"A perfect read-aloud book for parents to share with little ones just before bedtime. Gentle illustrations in cool, soothing colors show different animals sleeping snugly in their dens, nests, burrows, and lodges."  —Midwest Book Review

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a gift for a toddler niece, but previewed it with my son. He was so inspired by the illustrations that he wanted to know more about all of the animals, but especially about the porcupines and what those little weird shaped things outside the porcupine's bed are. He shared what he learned in the book with his dad and older sister and has requested his own copy of The Animals' Winter Sleep. My only disgreement with the other reviews is about the book being relaxing. My kid is itching for some snow, so he can get out there and learn even more.

This gentle winter tale is perfect for lulling young ones to sleep. Rhyming text describes how 13 North American animals adapt to the winter cold. Colored pencil illustrations show bears, squirrels, and beavers taking cover in their dens, nests, and lodges. An educational section at the end of the book illustrates various animal tracks and provides information on winter foods, nesting materials, and survival strategies.
