When fall turns to winter in the Midwest, you’ll notice that many of the animals that we share a habitat with are less visible. Where have they all gone? During this time of year, animals will either hibernate through colder months, migrate to a warmer climate, or adapt physically and behaviorally to survive.
At this same time, you may find yourself wanting to spend more time inside to avoid brisk temperatures and strong winds. Though we believe there is no such thing as bad weather, we can certainly understand the impulse to want to curl up inside with a cozy blanket and a good book.
When you choose to stay inside, we encourage you to create a cozy den for yourself and grab one of our favorite winter children’s books to learn what all of our feathered, furry and scaly friends are up to this time of year.
Don’t forget to check out our Books and Resources tab to find even more children’s books to enjoy!
