Publisher's Summary

A little girl, out cross-country skiing with her father, thinks about the various ways familiar animals survive the harsh winter weather. Over the snow, the world is hushed and white. But under the snow exists a secret kingdom of squirrels and snow hares, bears and bullfrogs, and many other animals that live through the winter safe and warm, awake and busy, under the snow. Discover the wonder and activity that lies beneath winter's snowy landscape in this magical audiobook.

Fun Winter Adventure For Children

This short book is a great introduction for children about cross country skiing in the winter woods and the wildlife living under the snow. The author does a nice follow up after the story filling in with nature facts that add texture and more information about the experience. The narration was calm and pleasant to listen to. This book is a good winter listen that engages young readers and broadens their connection to the natural world.
