Story Walk

Just in the nick of time, We have a new story walk. Come read "Over and Under the Snow" by Kate Messner. One winter I watched in fascination as a squirrel popped his head out of the snow, dove back down under and popped up again in the middle of the yard. What else is under the snow or sheltering in the trees? Read this book and look around - let me know what you can see.
