Every person living in a cold climate knows the feeling of wishing for spring, and wondering when warm weather will ever come again. This charming book tells of a family of mice, who's little ones keep asking for the things that make spring special: the morning sun, black raspberries with cream, steep grassy hills to roll down. But now it's winter, and mother-mouse reminds them to be content in the season they're in now: with fuzzy dark with stray stars, oatmeal with butter and brown sugar, and sledding hills. The coziness of their family is heightened by delightful paper-snowflakes that dance in the background. 30 pages, hardcover with dust jacket.
