This book is great!
The author writes with so much description that you
Can actually "hear" the snow in the book.

Good one to break out with the kidos.

This is a wonderful picture book for children of all ages. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful and set the mood from the very first page. Read is aloud to your favorite child(ren) and go on a nighttime adventure in the snowy woods. You won't be sorry, and will probably never forget the experience.
