Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Written by Tim Hopgood, Richard Smith, Felix Bernard

Walking in a Winter Wonderland Synopsis

'Sleigh bells ring! Are you Listening?' Based on the classic song Winter Wonderland, this gorgeous picture book takes you on an enchanting journey through a glistening winter landscape. With beautiful wildlife to spot on every page, it is the perfect gift for the most wonderful time of the year. The book comes with an accompanying CD which includes the much-loved recording of the song by Peggy Lee that's just perfect for singing along to. 'Winter Wonderland is one of my favourite songs and one thats played over and over again in our house throughout the winter months. Hearing it conjures up happy memories of winter walks in the woods with my family and friends. No matter how old you are, I think the wonder and excitement of waking up to a world under a blanket of snow still remains. TIM HOPGOOD
