In this cozy bedtime story, follow a child and his grandma through a winter landscape to explore how the Earth goes to sleep for winter.

Spot the sleeping animals as the tale unfolds, then learn about their hibernation habits from the information pages at the end.

Co-authors Sean Taylor (picture book author) and Alex Morss (ecologist, journalist, and educator) offer a gentle introduction to the concept of hibernation.  In the frosty, quiet forest, the snow blankets the ground and the trees have shed their leaves.  Where have all the animals gone? Are they asleep too?

In each cutaway scene, see what the child cannot - that underground below his feet are dens with sleeping creatures, and within the hollow trunks of trees, animals are nesting.  After the story, annotated illustrations explain the hibernation facts for each animal and what they will do when they wake up for spring.
