For my final blog post of 2020, I’d like to share a book that was just published. After the Snowfall is a beautifully illustrated book that introduces our children to the wonder of nature in winter. While the narrative may be slim, the marvelous art will warm up your family this Winter.
After the Snowfall
Rich Lo – Author and Illustrator
Sparse prose follows a red fox peering from a den, seeing other animals of the forest—a buck, a great horned owl, squirrels, mice, a moose, and more—and making note of their actions while journeying to the stream for a drink. “His thirst quenched, the fox heads home,” rejoining his family: a vixen and kits. The quiet, documentary tone echoes the stillness denoted on the first page , “All is silent”.
