IN A NUTSHELL: A poetic sketch of the preparations all life makes for winter.

SUMMARY: Animals and humans alike are hustling and bustling as they prepare for the quickly approaching winter. Animals build shelters and gather food. People gather together indoors to keep warm and rejoice. Rylant's details of the scents, sounds and emotions of autumn combined with Kastner's rich illustrations capture the essence of this beautiful time of year.
