We love this picture book, as much as we loved last year’s festive title from Yuval Zommer, The Tree That’s Meant To Be. There is such a pleasing symmetry between words and pictures in this classically-structured story.
Fox and Hare were born in spring, grew up in summer, and were best friends by autumn. When winter comes, they can’t wait to jump, leap and, bounce in this thing called snow. But what exactly is snow? Join fox and hare on an Arctic journey as they ask all their friends to help them find out. This is a charming and classic-feeling Christmas picture book with a heartfelt message about seeing the wonder of the natural world. Families will love sharing the story and talking about kindness, community, and the true meaning of Christmas. Award-winning author of books such as The Big Book of Bugs and The Big Book of Beasts, Yuval Zommer puts the living world at the heart of his powerful storytelling.
