Have you ever seen a butterfly in the snow?
Probably not. Butterflies can't survive cold weather, so when winter comes, many butterflies fly to warmer places. They migrate. Woodchucks don't like cold weather either but they don't migrate; they hibernate. Woodchucks sleep in their dens all winter long. Read and find out how other animals cope with winter's worst weather.

This informational picture storybook describes how, why, and what animals move south for the winter or do for the winter. I never knew that a woodchuck can sleep for longer than four months¿that is crazy! The book is organized by different animals and describes their habits in the winter. The book seems accurate, as it is part of a series developed by people knowledgeable in the field.
This book talks about what a variety of different animals do in the winter. It discusses animals that migrate, hibernate, store food to eat, and hunt for food. Also discussed are ways to help animals in the winter (different foods to leave out for them).
