Animals in Fall: Preparing for Winter by Martha E. H. Rustad and illustrated by Amanda Enright

Kids know that seasons change from winter to fall to spring. We prepare for it by wearing heavier clothes, turning up the heat, and storing food for the winter. But how do animals get ready for winter? What do they do to get ready for the snow? Some hibernate; some fly south for the winter. Some turn a different colour; some put on weight. Find out more about the world of nature in this beautifully illustrated, easy to follow book that looks at animals and the seasons. There's lots of great information and a glossary at the end for figuring out new words. There's even an experiment that kids can do at home to simulate how layers of fat keep animals warm. This book will be a natural fit in schools and libraries during the autumn months, but it's a great choice for curious kids all year long.

See more information about the book from Lerner Publishing. I received an advance review copy from NetGalley.
