With colorful and detailed paintings depicting the winter forest and its animal inhabitants, this seasonal title is perfect for classroom and family sharing all year round.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“The simple story of [Lucy’s] realization and her attempt to make amends is told in deliciously rich language so porous it opens up glorious possibilities for the illustrations . . . Perkins’ art, with its warm yellows, opulent blues, and soft browns of wintry forest and cozy dens, nicely complements the fine narrative arc.” - Kirkus Reviews
