Item description for When Winter Comes by Nancy Van Laan...

Rhyming text asks where different animals go "when winter comes and the cold wind blows."

Publishers Description
"Knock, knock
Who's there?
Someone with sad underwear.
Sad underwear? How can that be?
When my best friend's mad at me,
Everything is sad.
Even my underwear. "
But sad underwear is just one of the many complications a person has to deal with. There's the first day of school ("Will they let me go when I need to go to the bathroom?") and pests like Wayne ("a fellow who clogs up life's drain") and bee stings and liver for supper -- and missing your dad.
This companion volume to the acclaimed "If I Were in Charge of the World and Other Worries" has poems for explorers and dreamers, for people who love unicorns, for people who'd rather have pets than baby sisters. Funny, poignant and always true, it examines and celebrates life with all of its perplexing complications.

Reviews - What do customers think about When Winter Comes?

Excellent story and illustrations!  Feb 26, 2003
I have been reading this book to my daughter for quite some time now and she loves it. So do I. I also read it to a local kindergarten class last year and they too loved it. It is simple,pretty and classic. Great book!!
Excellent!  Mar 15, 2002
I saw this book in my child's school book order and just had to have it. My son was not so convinced, but reluctantly agreed to order it. Now he loves it! The author has put into words a story that I can share with my son the world that I grew up in. The poetry and pictures just completely draw us in.
What a wonderful book!  Oct 21, 2000
I picked up this book because I loved the illustrations and the author lives in Bucks Co., Pa (as do I). Well, my four year old son and I just loved it. And it made for good conversation after. The author addresses in such a nice, comfortable way what happens to flowers, fish, deer, birds and caterpillars in the winter. The illustrations are just beautiful and cozy. A wonderful winter book--or any time really.
