The "Wow!" Season
By Carole Marsh

Wow! I Didn't Know That!!!

Nonfiction that Entertains as Surely as Fiction

     This is a book for children who live in warm climates. They can learn something about something they have never seen.

     This is a book for children who experience winter every year. They can learn to appreciate what they have.

     This is a book for parents, too. They'll learn interesting tidbits about winter they never knew as they read to their kids.

     This is a book for teachers. It's a darn good resource and idea book.

     Winter: The 'Wow!' Season presents information on anything and everything one could possibly know about winter. Carole Marsh, the author, tells us about frogs that freeze in the winter and wake up in the spring because of a kind of antifreeze in their bodies. She includes practical advice and career possibilities for those interested in all things wet, cold and frozen. There's stuff about insects and animals and avalanches. It includes information about hibernation and wintertime etiquette. There's even an adorable g-g-g-glossary!

     Winter is illustrated with clipart style pictures. Many are humorous. There are enough of them to keep even a toddler asking questions. It's a paperback, so even the price is attractive.
