" Engaging flow of facts and images, but I have a fundamental problem with this book: it assumes that it snows in winter. For many places, this is not part of children's experience. " said.

" Wonderful picture book about winter. It explains in an easy way about how snow is formed and what happens to animals and plants during the winter up north.Really loved this book and will be using it to help in my passive program I am planning for the library in January. " said.

" Looking for a creative book about winter to share with your youngsters and read about ways to enjoy it? Look no further! Bruce Goldstone has rounded up fun facts and activities centered around winter and even the white stuff.Published by Henry Holt & Company.#PB #NF #winter #activities #FunFacts " said.

" Not sure how to feel about this "here are a bunch of fun facts about winter" text. " said.

"This is a fantastic look at the wonders of winter that is both simple and detailed. It is adaptable to a wide range of ages as you can pick out just the facts you want to share, or read the entire book, which is not overly long. There are great photographs and interesting facts throughout. As simple as it is, even I learned some new things about animals - like how foxes eat mostly fruits and insects throughout the year, but then eat more meat (like mice) in the winter. Fascinating!

It touches on weather, plants, animals, how snowflakes and icicles form, winter sports, machines, food, and the various holidays celebrated in winter. It even has simple concept pages (like shapes) for younger readers. And at the end, there are instructions for easy crafts and activities kids can do. This book has it all!

I'm interested to read the author's Awesome Autumn and hope that he follows up with books on spring and summer as well.

"Bruce Goldstone’s seasonal follow up to the popular Awesome Autumn will not disappoint fans of the increasingly popular hybrid picture book/nonfiction genre. His use of space in both photo illustrations and text placement make for an absorbing treat for the eyes and ears. His design is flawless; yet his text has an acknowledged error which he discusses on his website that concerns the correct name for a North American Bison which is commonly, yet incorrectly called a Buffalo in error. My concern is that readers who are unaware of the error will perpetuate the terminology. Overall though, this concern does not take away that it is a wonderful book filled with great visuals, interactive text and lots of great information on winter.

The book ends with some easy to make and do winter arts, crafts, and science experiments as well as a tease for maybe the third book “Spectacular Spring” and a hope that we will see it published soon! I would recommend this book for any school or public library. It is a great read aloud to groups and classes and it also would appeal to early elementary age readers exploring books on their own.

Just short of perfection on an author acknowledged error, great visuals with a popular topic for pre-k and early elementary students. I would recommend this book for purchase.

"Full-page and double-page photograph spreads accompany interesting observations about winter and its many splendors. Since most of us are curious and wonder how certain things happen, such as how icicles form, what makes it snow, and what the most common sounds associated with the season are, the book provides simple but accurate explanations, thus satisfying readers' curiosity. I'm glad to know how those poor animals who live outdoors manage to survive the cold temperatures. How can species that are so much alike be so different in their adaptations for certain types of weather? With a little bit of something for everyone, the book also suggests six winter-related craft projects to keep readers busy--and to feed some hungry birds. Although it won't take long to read this book, it is written in an engaging, informative, and no-nonsense fashion so that readers will want to learn even more about this most wonderful season of all.
