Last week, while celebrating animals in winter, we read The Big Snow by Bertha and Elmer Hader. This is such a beautiful story, with beautiful words and beautiful illustrations. In it, we are able to hear and see all the woodland animals as they prepare for winter and experience the first big snow of the season.
After reading, we painted pine cones with white tempera paint and sprinkled them with glitter. They look snowy and sparkly hanging in one of our front windows.
There is such beauty in this time of year. We are celebrating it!
