Snow Ponies

by Cynthia Cotten; illustrated by Jason Cockcroft

Square Fish

Magical ponies create the first snowfall of winter

On a cold, gray day, Old Man Winter leads his snow ponies outside. "Are you ready?" he asks. Yes! Faster and faster the ponies gallop. Everything they touch turns white with snow as they bring winter to the forest and field.

At last the ponies tire, and Old Man Winter settles them down for the night in their cozy barn. Outside, the world is covered with a soft white blanket. Winter has come at last.

Simple, poetic text and evocative illustrations capture the magic of winter's first snowfall.
