This is a wonderful interpretation of how we receive snow every winter. Grandmother Winter shakes her feather white quilt, and snow falls through the air. Animals prepare for winter, and children come ready to play.This would be something I would want to read to my students on a chilly afternoon, maybe when they couldn't go outside to play because of the weather. It makes me want to curl up with a blanket and sip hot cocoa!Each child could illustrate his or her own quilt square depicting one of the animals that is talked about in the story or a unique snowflake. As a class, we could sew the squares together to make a class quilt that could be used during reading time. This book could be read before we study hibernation of animals in science. The students would get a better picture of what certain animals do during winter months.
