Within this snuggly bedtime story there is an excellent introduction to looking at nature. It is Cub’s first winter and he wants to learn everything he can about it. Mum gives him lyrical answers to his many questions as she leads through an increasingly snowy and icy landscape before they scamper home just in time to tuck up safe and warm.
