The Big Snow


The Big Snow

by Berta Hader
Simon & Schuster Children's

The woodland animals were all getting ready for the winter. Geese flew south, rabbits and deer grew thick warm coats, and the raccoons and chipmunks lay down for a long winter nap. Come Christmastime, the wise owls were the first to see the rainbow around the moon. It was a sure sign that the big snow was on its way.

Ideas to Explore Together

Before you read: When you know that winter is coming soon, what do you do? What do you think animals do?

As you read: Do you think the animals have prepared for winter? Why or why not? What else do you think they could do?

After you read: Why did the old man and the old woman do what they did? What do you think the animals would have done without the help of the old man and woman?
