Over and Under the Snow Inspires Curiosity

Over and Under the Snow CoverLooking for a new bedtime story for winter? Over and Under the Snow by Kate Messner provides the perfect opportunity to imagine wintery landscapes from the cozy comfort of home. The beautifully illustrated children’s book tells the story of a young girl who sees clues and hears the sounds of life as she skis through the seemingly silent wood with her father.

It’s a charming story of winter adventure and the wild world that exists just below our feet (or skis). The whimsical illustrations by Chris Silas Neal depict winter wildlife like squirrels, bears, hares, foxes and bullfrogs and will inspire a youngster’s curiosity. Over and Under the Snow also provides an educational element. A kid-friendly index provides factual information about animals that spend the winter months under the snow and a list of places where kids can go to learn more about snow-dwelling critters.
