The Big Snow


In The Big Snow by Berta and Elmer Hader, the woodland animals are all getting ready for the coming winter. Groundhogs hibernate, squirrels gather nuts, rabbits grow thick fur coats, and geese fly south. After the first snows of winter, the animals come out to frolic and play. On the night after Christmas, the owl family sees a rainbow glow around the moon, and they know that much more snow is on the way.
