Book Review


It’s winter and Badger has yet to see a snowflake fall from the sky. Hedgehog encourages him to be patient, but being patient can be hard! Badger uses a telescope to look for snow and bangs on pots and pans to try to wake up the sky. After hearing the noise, Rabbit, Vole, and Possum join in, throwing pebbles at the sky in hope that the holes in the clouds will let snow loose. Vole suggests a snow dance, but no snow falls. The animals find other things to keep them busy, and when they wake up in the morning there is finally snow!
