by Steven Schnur Illustrated by Leslie Evans

Sleds sailing downhill on newly fallen snow, animals nestled deep in underground burrows, and families gathered hearthside to share the joys of the season are among the alphabet of cold-weather delights celebrated in 26 acrostic poems, alphabetically arranged. The colors and textures of winter--the cool blue of icy ponds and the golden glow of holiday candles--are gloriously captured in linoleum-cut illustrations. A companion volume to Autumn, Spring, and Summer, Winter rounds out the year of seasonal collaborations by Steven Schnur and Leslie Evans.
