Bundled up for a winter adventure, a young child explores the winter wonderland in his backyard. From footprints in the snow to sparkling snowflakes and a glimpse of deer running away everything seens special. He finds a blue feather from a jay, “a piece of the sky” to give his mom. The soft pictures show winter through a child’s eyes, where everything from the birds at the feeder to the pine cones in the tree deserve a moment of attention.
