Under the Snow was written by Melissa Stewart and illustrated by Constance R. Bergum. It was published in 2009 by Peachtree Publishers.

Melissa Stewart has a wonderful way with nonfiction picture books. This little volume is no different. She introduces snow and the fun we all have with it. Then she turns her attention to what rodents, reptiles, amphibians and insects do buried beneath the snow and earth all winter long. Bergum’s illustrations are beautiful. Even the mounds of snow aren’t all the same shade of white. Silvery reflections of branches, tracks and stones decorate them.

Stewart’s sparse text tells young readers just enough about each animal’s winter to pique their interest. They might even get Mom or Dad to help them with an Internet search, or a trip to the library, to learn more about a particularly curious critter.

Reading Under the Snow with your kids or grandkids is a great way to spend some time together the next time your neighborhood is deep in snow.

Stewart has authored more than 130 science related nonfiction books. If your young kids want to know about anything “sciency” Stewart probably has a book about it. Check it out!
