Season Facts and Fun

Bruce Goldstone

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)


Winter is a season of wondering and waiting. We wonder why some trees lose their leaves while others stay green all winter long. We wait for the first snowfall—and then wonder at how amazing each snowflake is. We wonder how animals manage to live in the cold. And we can't wait to celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa.

With vivid photographs, lively explanations, and creative craft ideas, Bruce Goldstone presents all the fascinating facts that make winter so wonderful!

Reviews from Goodreads

Bruce Goldstone

Bruce Goldstone has always liked cold weather, having grown up outside Cleveland, with its bracing (and persistent) lake-effect snow. These days, wonderful winter mornings find him in one of New York City's great parks with his feisty dog Jasper. Once they're back home, Bruce settles down to work, creating acclaimed books such as Great Estimations, I See a Pattern Here, Awesome Autumn, and That's a Possibility!
