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.

This is a book for children conservationists. It is a poem about how a child fits in the world. “Earth so big and me so small.” But even if we are small, we can do a lot to help the Earth. It talks about the bad things happening to the earth like greenhouse gases and the ways we can change our lives to help, like recycling.
I liked it because it is really good for kids who don’t know what they can do to help the world. It tells them stuff they can do. The photos are very pretty and make you want to go for a hike. It makes you want to help the animals. I learned a lot from this book.
I just think this is a book everyone should have on their shelf, so I recommend it to everyone!
