Sleds sailing downhill on newly fallen snow, animals nestled deep in underground burrows, and families gathered hearthside to share the joys of the season are among the alphabet of cold-weather delights celebrated in 26 acrostic poems, alphabetically arranged. The colors and textures of winter--the cool blue of icy ponds and the golden glow of holiday candles--are gloriously captured in linoleum-cut illustrations. A companion volume to Autumn, Spring, and Summer, Winter rounds outthe year of seasonal collaborations by Steven Schnur and Leslie Evans.
