"PreS-K-The winsome return of two friends and their daily activities, their experience of the seasons, and the simple concepts they encounter. Rabbit Lily and her adventurous mouse friend, Milo, confront a variety of winter scenarios-going outside, what to wear or take outdoors, and how to warm up. Outside they find frozen ground, bare trees, and hungry birds. As it starts to snow heavily, they feed the birds and start a snowman until Milo, shivering with cold, realizes he has lost his hat, scarf, and mittens. Brightly colored, outlined characters with simply drawn expressions lead this romp, while sentences are structured to emphasize new words, offer brief dialogue between characters, and support new vocabulary through groups of items to wear or bring outside. Window views to the quickly changing weather encourage page turns; Oud provides visual clues to reveal the loss and location of Milo's missing articles of clothing.

"This one is so freaking cute and I am missing my favourite season already!!!! This one is pretty basic as an activity book teaching kids about the basic winter clothings and what fun activities we can do during a cold winter day! I love the illustrations. They are so adorable! I love the snow art (I am missing my childhood days now!). The birds, the snow, the snowman, the fun! I just adore this picture book!" - Reading Tamishly
