It's winter. It's cold! The squirrels are digging up acorns to eat. But what will they eat in the spring, when the acorns are gone? As the bushy-tailed creatures weather snowstorms, thunderstorms, and hot summer days, this gentle story uses simple, clear language and beautiful illustrations to introduce very young readers to the seasons and the changing weather they bring, as well as a peek into a squirrel’s busy life. Basic questions at the end help children remember and expand on what they've learned, and back matter includes an index.
