Last week, we also read Over and Under the Snow by Kate Messner. This book gives us a close look at the animals that stay out or "over the snow" during winter and the animals that go "under the snow" on the same page. It is like looking in on the layers of winter. It is beautiful. We were inspired to create our own paintings, using watercolors, of animals over and under the snow. Sophie painted an Great Horned Owl and a vole. Audrey painted a fox and a field mouse. Ethan painted a fox and a beaver. Ava painted beautiful colors.
