Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A beautifully delivered natural history lesson."—Booklist
"Brings soothing balm to day's end."—Publishers Weekly
"From mountains to desert, from hayloft to underwater stream, the imagery and ideas offer delight."—Kirkus Reviews
Publishers Weekly
Autumn turns to winter and forces animals to find protective shelter. "The text sets up a rhyme of simple questions on one spread, answered with the turn of the page by rhyming couplets," wrote PW. "The broad scope of softly rounded rural scenes brings soothing balm to day's end." Ages 3-7. (Oct.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature - Jackie Hechtkopf
In sweet rhyming verse, accompanied by stunning acrylic artwork, this book explains where bees, snakes, bats, ducks, mice and other animals go when the weather turns cold. The short text reads like a lullaby. Young children will be entranced by the vibrant colors in Greg Newbold's breathtaking illustrations. This book is a delightful blend of poetry and art. Preschool teachers will love using it for lessons on winter animals. The ending, which tells where people go "when the cold bites their fingertips and noses," is especially cozy. The last page shows a warm fireplace and two children cuddled up in a big chair with their father, reading a book of "Fairly Tall Tales." This wintertime message should be welcomed everywhere.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-This picture book addresses the curious disappearance of nature's summertime animal population when the weather turns cold. Bees head for their hives, bats go to their caves, and birds fly south toward kinder climates. Seven animals in all, including humans, make their escape to warmth. The poetic text consistently puts forth a free-verse question "When ice covers/the mountain lake like a crust,/where do the fish go?" followed by a rhymed-couplet answer "They swim below,/where warm streams flow" on the next double spread. The literary qualities-subtle alliteration and assonance as well as rhyme-work well for reading aloud. A three year old may not immediately grasp that a "Breeze [blowing] the petals off the flowers" is an obvious indication of a change of season, but Newbold's illustrations explain it nicely with a pared-down realism of bold but not overly bright acrylic paintings. The artist's pallet complements the text well. Warm-tinted oranges and yellows highlight the waning summer days, while winter's tones are cool blues, whites, and grays. The landscapes depicted seem to be the same rural American countryside, but the insertion of one desert setting interrupts the regionally flavored flow. As a whole, the format seems just a bit haphazard, despite the fine words and pretty pictures.-Peg Solonika, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA
Kirkus Reviews
This carefully crafted question-and-answer book is more than a lullaby; its excellent content need not be saved for bedtime. Alternating spreads ask questions and then provide answers: "When wind whistles through the evergreen forest, where do the bats go?" is answered in the next spread, "To caverns deep, for a long sleep." The series of questions explains natural phenomena—where bees, snakes, mice, fish, etc., go when it becomes too cold for them. The last of the questions in this quick but compelling read comes as two children return home from sledding, chilly and ready for a cozy perch on their father's lap by the fireplace. The pastoral illustrations offer first expansive views of nature, followed by close-up depictions of the animals' snug retreats; a patchwork of crops is shown from a distance or from overheard, its vegetation slightly rounded; a desert scene comes with a dramatic sky. From mountains to desert, from hayloft to underwater stream, the imagery and ideas offer delight. (Picture book. 3-6)
