Despite most of the rest of the country being covered in snow, we have had very little, a dusting. Whilst we are waiting for the snow we have been reading a lovely book this week about snow. Snow Bears by Martin Waddell.
It is the story of three bears who go out to play in the snow. When their mother joins them they are covered in snow and she asks where her bear babies have gone, they then proceed to pretend they are not her babies but snow bears. They have lots of fun in the snow with mummy bear before heading inside to warm up by the fire, where something strange happens to the snow bears.....
This is a delightful, gentle story which my youngest has enjoyed at bedtime every night this week. The illustrations are a beautiful accompaniment to the story.
