When The Snow Comes by Jonathan Allen...Review & Giveaway

Soon (at least where I live!) the snow will be flying.  I have just the book for you and your little ones to get ready for it...When The Snow Comes by Jonathan Allen

When The Snow Comes tells the story of a little Yak waiting to see his very first snow.  He watches as his friends prepare for the snow.  His bird friend informs him that he flies off to warmer parts, brown bear tells him of eating lots and lots in preparation for his long sleep....Little Yak wonders what he should do.  He asks his mom if yaks do what all their friends do to prepare for winter.  His mother lets him know that yaks stay right where they are and that little yaks snuggle up to their moms to stay warm.  The story ends with the first flakes of snow and a mother and young yak snuggled up all cozy. 

This is such a sweet book and, I think, a particularly nice bedtime story.  The illustrations are very pleasing to the eye and depict kid friendly animals with lots of animation.  I would recommend this one for ages 3 and up.  This would be a great one to have for those upcoming snowy nights....snuggle up with your little one and get reading When The Snow Comes!   You can purchase this one on Amazon....

What my daughter and I begin to prepare for winter, the main thing we do is pull out all of her warm winter clothes from last year. I have her try them on to see if they still fit. Then we make a list of what she'll need.
