Winter Dance

We rated this book:


As fall ends, a fox is on a journey to discover what it needs to do to for winter, and along the way it’s taught about how other animals spend their time during winter. It’s a sweet story that’s funny and charming, with animals giving the fox different advice until it discovers what’s best for it. There’s a variety of animals with little tidbits about them, from geese flying south to squirrels storing nuts. Winter Dance ends on a sweet note, joyful and happy with the two foxes dancing and winter officially upon them. The illustrations by Richard Jones are lovely and vibrant, with warm colors that are full of life and that perfectly capture that end of fall feeling when it’s on the brink of becoming winter. Marion Dane Bauer’s writing is poetic, with a soft, lyrical quality to it that reads like a dance itself. It’s rhythmic and lovely, and it pulls you along as fall slowly turns to winter. Winter Dance shines in every way, an all around lovely story that’s a perfect read for the season.
