From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- After inviting readers into a country landscape, the authors explore the common and often overlooked animal life abundant there. Children are encouraged to look for signs of wild creatures, including many species of birds, reptiles, and rodents; the cocoon of next spring's moth and the eggs of next year's spiders; and a variety of animals such as deer, bats, and raccoons. The full-page watercolor illustrations realistically portray animals in snowy scenes during the day and through the night and are unusually appealing. The last page functions as an index of sorts, alphabetically listing the animals which appear and on which pages they can be found. Preschool and early elementary teachers will find many uses for this book, since the illustrations are large enough to be shared with a group, and the text is sufficiently abbreviated to function as a reader for beginners who have mastered basic skills. Children will look at the winter landscape in a different way after spending time with this treasure. --Ellen Fader, Westport Public Library, Conn.

From Publishers Weekly:

This is the 30th book that Selsam and Hunt have written together; but in this particular collaboration it is Chartier's art that steals the show. Well-defined watercolor paintings show a rural house and snowy, forested yard. Everything is still in the first spread, but in successive pictures, readers discover birds, insects, reptiles and mammals. Many of these creatures are attracted to man-made amenities such as the woodpile and the birdfeeder; bats emerge from the attic at night, and raccoons raid the garbage. The story maintains credibility because the animals never appear in incompatible groupings or large numbers. Though not especially inventive, this is a pleasant, lovely book; text and pictures easily shift from the large scene to close-ups and back again. Ages 5-8.
