There is a stranger in the woods after a winter storm. The deer, birds and other animals are trying to figure what he is. The story is what the animals think he is. They never figure out the secret that the reader knows – he is a snowman.
This is a photo illustrated book, so where the story is made up, the animals are real. The photos show kids what forest animals look like in the winter. The photos are really pretty. My favorite is the owl photo. It is beautiful.
I recommend this to anyone who wants to help the environment. It helps understand how animals get food in the winter.
