Book of the Week: Over and Under the Snow by Kate Messner, illustrated by Christopher Silas Neal

In this book

 we get a peek at what’s happening on top and underneath the snow. From dozing mice to snoozing bullfrogs to snoring bears, we glimpse the ordinary magic of life both over and under the snow.

I love the simple, lyrical text by Kate Messner and the lovely illustrations by Christopher Silas Neal. You’ll also find an enlightening Author’s Note at the back of the book that sheds light on the creatures met throughout the book’s pages.

Recommended for:

Ages 3-7, but as with all excellent picture books, older kids will enjoy it, too.
