In Winter in the Woods, Danny and Bee explore the winter woods near their home. Everywhere they look, the quiet bare trees and drifts of white snow show signs of the animals and plants waiting for warmer weather. Winter in the Woods features original photography and has a glossary of new terms. The inside back cover includes instructions for young naturalists on how to make a paper-bag field journal to take with them when they go exploring.

I am beginning my third year of teaching first grade in South Washington County. The students LOVE Danny! We have so much success in using these because the students have fun discussing them. I integrate science and math into my literacy as much as possible, so any book with topics related to these subjects is helpful. The look of the Danny books are great! The font is the perfect size, the photos are fun, and the titles are clear. Thank you for these excellent resources!
I like the real pictures. Kids see those and are interested right away. I also really like the book fonts. Easy to read and and spacing between letters and words is perfect.
I love all aspects of your books and am especially grateful for the new non fiction books you have put out and are continuing to create.
