Just outside my window,There are tracks in the snow.Who made the tracks? Where do they go?
A little girl wakes up to a fresh snowfall, but finds herself curious about a set of tracks she sees outside. Bundled up in a warm red coat and a striped scarf, she sets out to follow them. She discovers a woodchuck snuggled up safe in a burrow, and does snow angels as she looks at the empty branches of the trees.
But her feet are getting colder, and she's getting tired... will she ever find out who made the tracks? Suddenly, just as she's about to give up hope, she has a realization: these tracks are hers from the day before — and they're leading her home to a warm, cozy kitchen with tea and cookies! Like Ezra Jack Keats' The Snowy Day, this sweet book is a lovely celebration of snow and winter, just right for the littlest readers.
"The gentle, rhyming text makes an ideal read-aloud, and young listeners will chime in on the repeated phrases. The soft-focus, colored-pencil illustrations portray a small Asian girl exploring her safe world, but a world transformed by the fresh snowfall.... The cozy ending, complete with tea and cookies in a snug, warm kitchen, completes this tender celebration of the season." — School Library Journal
