Winter can be a cold and dreary time, but it can also be a time of fun-filled snowy days and snug evenings indoors. This mini-anthology celebrates winter weather in a variety of settings, with poems about snow in rural, suburban, and urban locales. It also explores both the exciting and cozy sides of winter, as in the excerpt "Mr. Badger" from Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows. The accompanying articles look at how people have responded to winter weather in the past and present, and the activities offer fun ways for families to enjoy their time inside and away from winter's chill.
