Title: Snowy, Blowy Winter

Author: Bob Raczka

Review by: Elizabeth, (Seymour) Muehl Public Library

This book has beautiful pictures of the activities of winter, inside and outside. Toward the end is a cute reference to the groundhog and the joy felt with the news that there is still six more weeks of winter!
