A close-up of tree trunks leads to the question "What are these?"

A page turn reveals: trees!

Look to the right—what are those?

Shadows of crows!

Follow the clues on each spread until the snow starts to melt and spring is revealed.

A playful guessing game set in a snowy landscape, this gorgeously illustrated picture book offers a cozy look at a cold winter that slowly melts into a bright spring with only a handful of carefully chosen words.
