Winter dance by Marion Dane Bauer; illustrated by  Richard Jones

The change of season approaches and a young red fox questions what to do to be ready for winter in this lovingly rendered picture book. The fox looks for help from different creatures of the forest - a caterpillar, turtle, bat, squirrel, goose, snowshoe hare, and bear. Each of their answers reflects the innate behavior of their species. Eventually, another red fox shows up with an idea that may surprise, but is based in fact.

Once upon a winter day by Liza Woodruff
A fun book for kids to learn about animals in winter, and one that will inspire their own winter stories. The illustrations on each page set up puzzles and possible solutions as readers travel along with Milo on his outdoor adventures. The boy makes discoveries in the fields and woods, observing natural clues left by different animals, which invites kids to ponder over all the activity seen, and predict what the animals were doing.

Tracks in the snow by Wong Herbert Yee
A little girl follows mysterious tracks in the snow, wondering who made them.
