There is more than one way for animals to prepare for winter. Some, such as mice, foxes, and moose, simply tolerate the cold. Of course black bears hibernate, but chipmunks, wood frogs, and garter snakes do too. And then there are the creatures that migrate, including hummingbirds, blue whales, and even earthworms! This rhyming nonfiction picture book by Laura Purdie Salas tells you all about how animals survive chilly weather.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
What a charming book written by a Minnesotan who knows winter, with the most colorful and engaging illustrations! It had me at the fox on the cover, then won me completely with the rhyming story about how creatures get ready for winter. Some like lumbering bears hibernate, others such as the sly fox endure the chill while still others including fluttery hummingbirds leave for warmer climes. Includes a glossary of terms, with more detailed sections on winter survival strategies and the three types of animals fitting those categories: migrators, hibernators and tolerators. Perfect for children learning about creatures and nature — and adults, who will be entranced by the artwork! 5/5 Pub Date 03 Sep 2019.
