A sweet poetic board book celebrating the vibrancy of wildlife and families in the outdoors in winter

Though a forest may be blanketed in snow or a lake frozen over, families who enjoy the outdoors in winter, happily bundled up to play in the energizing weather, know that wildlife is still teeming there.  

The fallen log that is used to hide behind in a snowball fight is a shelter for tree frogs, caterpillars, ladybugs, and slugs. The drifts of fallen snow that families snowshoe across have winding tunnels made by meadow mice in search of seeds and bark. The towering trees shield birds from winter winds.

When Winter Comes celebrates the joy of playing and exploring in the outdoors during the winter months.
