With the arrival of winter, the forest animals prepare for the first snowfall of the season.

Carl R Sams II Photography
The great gray owl was driven down from the far north and carried the message to the creatures of the forest, "Winter is come! Winter is coming early! Prepare!" Are the animals listening to their heartsongs? Will they be ready for the cold, hard winter to come?
The nights grew longer. The winds blew colder. It was a time of changing seasons."Have you gathered your nuts yet, Spotty?" the chipmunk asked the fawn as he scurried through the woods burying nuts here and there. "I heard it from the rabbit, who heart it from the owl...winter's coming early this year, you better get ready!" But was he ready? Was he paying attention to his heartsong? Children of all ages will treasure this enchanted tale of change by wildlife photographers and New York Times bestselling authors Carl R. Sams II & Jean Stoick.

The photographs of animals and nature in this book are of a first rate quality. The prose describing the animals as they prepare for winter is soothing and not over flowery.
This story follows a fawn and other animals as summer turns to fall and then into winter. It shows how some animals prepare by eating more, storing food, and changing physically. The photographs of each animal are extraordinary.
This book is every teacher's dream. From it you can teach about different animals, about migration, about seasons, about hibernation, what animals eat and more. If nothing else, this book fosters a love for nature.
Each age group can get something different from this book so I would recommend it for all ages through the elementary grades.
