Description

Winter is a special time. As the snow begins to fall, it sets the stage for a whole array of wintry activities, like searching for special effects in the winter night sky. Or sewing up a pair of cozy fleece mitts. Or enjoying an outdoor picnic on a blanket of snow.

This book in the Family Fun series is packed with over 120 pages of unique ideas for celebrating winter. In fact, there are so many wonderful ways to enjoy this frosty season --- winter just isn't long enough!

Kids can • learn to identify animal tracks • tell silly fireside stories • make marshmallow s'mores • build sparkling sun catchers • set up their own goofy winter Olympics.
