Learn what animals do when the snow falls to the ground and all the trees are bare!

Some fly long distances, while some swim to warmer waters. Some take a long, warm sleep where they live, while others have a thick, cozy coat and can stay in the snow!

Filled with rich illustrations, charming animals, and a simple, lyrical text, Snow Rabbit, Spring Rabbit is now available in a board edition for the smallest hands and youngest readers. It's a gentle introduction to the ideas of adaptation, hibernation, and migration, and an exhuberant celebration of changing seasons.

This celebratory story of the changing seasons introduces the concept of seasonal adaptation, as evidenced by the changing colours of wild hares, animals the city of Calgary possesses in spades.

SUMMARY: Rabbit's fur has turned white signaling the beginning of winter. Other animals are aware too and they do what is necessary to live through the winter including gathering nuts and sleeping. But when spring comes, everyone knows, including rabbit whose fur turns back to its regular brown.

ILLUSTRATIONS: This book was illustrated in Na's usual style of textured painting and digital work. The pictures are absolutely stunning, colorful, and nicely spaced for younger viewers. The colors are a little more realistic than some of this books and yet still maintain a sense of creativity. I can't get enough of his pictures!

THE GOOD: This book is very simple for younger children. And although the wording is poetic in nature, the concepts of what animals do in the winter are easy to understand. I love that the little bunny shows up on every page as an observer of winter and its happenings. This is a lovely book to introduce the concepts of winter, and animal behavior and habitats.
