Over and Under the Snow

Over and Under the Snow, by Kate Messner is a stunning winter book.  Over the snow the world is hushed and white but under the snow, a secret kingdom exists where squirrels, bullfrogs, deer mice and queen bees live through winter safe and warm.  A beautifully illustrated and magical book revealing the wonder and activity beneath the snow.


Students created their own snow covered winter woodlands, complete with towering trees in shades of green, splattered in snow white paint.  The trees were glued purposely, sparingly to give the woods perspective and dimension.  Here is a sneak peek at a few finished winter wonderlands.
