I LOVE THIS BOOK. The biology/nature geek within me enthusiastically congratulates my kid's book loving geek on their mutual cleverness in finding this book.
Aren't my little snow people darling?
Yes, yes they are.

I love quiet and calm.

And animal-ly constellation dreams.
If this doesn't make you want to take a winter trek, I just don't know about you.
