Here’s a wonderful book to welcome the wintry weather. Over and Under the Snow is written by Kate Messner, with illustrations by Christopher Silas Neal. Over the snow, all is calm and quiet, but under the snow is a world of creatures and life and hibernation.

Sweet, charming — and you’ll probably learn something too. Read it while your kids are cozied up under lots of blankets. Or on the first day it snows!
