Under the snow lie a variety of habitats in which animals live and survive during the chilly winter months. This book describes these habitats in delightful lyrics that are ideal for reading aloud and will bring readers back again and again.

The text is supported by watercolor illustrations that capture the wonders under the snow. As the book is shared with a group, the illustrations will spark enthusiastic discussions. The book can supplement lessons on adaptations and encourage readers to improve their own observation skills as they look for signs of animals in winter.

The delightful combination of interesting content and intriguing presentation earned this book a place among NSTA/CBC's Outstanding Science Trade Books for 2010. This is an ideal tool for integrating inquiry and good literature.
