Get into the Spirit of Christmas! This charming story of a little squirrel’s first adventure in the snow is also a gentle reflection on the things we should really treasure. Little Squirrel lives in an oak tree with wise old Bear and the two do everything together, Squirrel revelling in his new experiences, Bear finding that everything feels new again with Squirrel at his side. When snow comes, Bear has a cold so Squirrel goes out alone. He’s desperate to bring a souvenir of his special day home for Bear, but snowflakes don’t travel well. Squirrel and Bear are irresistible characters, one all boundless energy, the other a comforting, solid presence, and the Yu Rong’s evocative papercut artwork also makes this very special. A lovely book for grown-ups and children to share. ~ Andrea Reece
From highly acclaimed picture book maker, Rachel Bright, comes a visually stunning, feel-good picture book filled with Yu Rong's distinctive, awe-inspiring papercut artwork. The snow is coming - Bear can smell it! Squirrel is so excited - he's never seen snow before! But when the snow arrives, Bear suddenly falls sick. Can Squirrel still bring some silvery, sparkly, magical whiteness to his best friend? Featuring a cut-out window in Squirrel's oak tree home, giving readers a sneak-peek to the wintry world outside, this delicately-crafted book captures the cosy, cuddly feeling of sharing a snowy night with a loved one, and is the perfect read for parents and children to treasure together - at Christmas and all year round.
How beautifully author and artist capture that joy of experiencing snow for the very first time. Share this one with early years children particularly after a snowfall and let them try taking snow indoors. Share it at home snuggled up with a young listener or two, and follow with a mug of hot chocolate. Red Reading Hub
