Beautiful painting illustrations. A two page spread asks a sparsely worded question about what a particular animal does when fall/winter comes. The following two page spread answers the question in two lines of a rhyme. This is for the very youngest, a beginning book on hibernation. Beautiful.

The pictures in this book are bright and beautiful. There aren't a lot of words, but there is lots of room for discussion, especially amongst winter experts, like my students!

Ask the children to make the sound of each animal to keep an interactive element for this simple and informative book about the season. Great rhymes too!

Recommends it for: animal and winter requests
Recommended to June by: Katie Fitzgerald
Beautiful pictures illustrate where various animals spend the winter, though it leaves out the bear. However, there are lots of stories about bears. 2/12/13

Went over well for the 2 children whose parents brought them out in the cold for story time. 1/7/14

Went over much better than Kitten's Winter. The 2 girls would always chime in with "I don't know" and then help turn the page to find out. 3/25/14

A boy asked for this and a parent liked it so well, she asked to check it out.
This could really be a picture book, and it could work for a story time.
A perfect school library choice for the weeks before winter break...

Winter Lullaby was not only a colorful and appropriate book for children, but it was also very educational. It explains where the bees, ducks, fish, and people go when winter comes and it is too cold for them.
Simple text with some little rhymes. Good illustrations.

I loved it--such beautiful illustrations, but Tommy commented that it was a book for me more than for him. : )
