    7. Illustrated by Constance BergumThis book was just okay for me, maybe I expected a little depth in the explaination of how animals adapt to winter weather, particularly I would have like to see ants and perhaps mosquitoes I really like the premise and the idea behind the book as the topics presented in the book would be great questions to present to children to get them thinking about nature and the changing of the seasons The book didn t talk about birds and how some birds migrate, so I think t [...]

The text Under The Snow is a children s book that does a wonderful job explaining what animals and reptiles do to survive in the winter months which could be confusing to children at first My favorite part of this piece of writing is the illustrations by Constance Ri Bergum because not only are they sophisticated but in a majority of the pictures the illustrator zoomed into a section of the picture to little but pertinent details that would otherwise be overlooked Many children are visual learne [...]
