“The Snow Knows” by McGrath & Bisaillon

About the Book...

click-my-nose-2016-bookThe snow knows
where the rabbit goes.
It knows the hush­shush
of the owl’s wing.

In this deceptively simple children’s picture book, a pair of award­ winning storytellers share the joys of winter. A lyrical prose poem, The Snow Knows introduces readers of all ages to animals both domestic (a tabby cat by the wood stove) and wild (a slinking lynx; a choir of coyotes), celebrating wilderness and outdoor play.

With whimsical hide ­and­ seek illustrations, readers will love following footprints and catching a glimpse of an owl’s wing or pheasant’s feathers, suggesting what appears on the following page. A beautiful book, destined to be a perennial winter favourite, and read aloud by a crackling fire.
