It’s winter now! In this book, young children can follow the changes in nature as well as in their familiar environment. Eleven detailed images offer much to see: With the first snow, the children build a snow man in the garden. At the kindergarten, they decorate for the holiday season, and at home, they bake the first Christmas cookies. Grandpa is repairing the sled so they can all go outside together, and when they take a walk in nature, they visit a frozen lake.
And, of course, one thing that can’t be missing from a winter book are the Advent period and the preparations for the upcoming Christmas holidays.

About the Series

The popular books from the successful “Things to Find” series allow children as young as 2 to playfully explore the world. These books about the most important topics for children feature numerous images of things to find on the edges of the pages, encouraging children to recognise and name things. Incidentally, this also inspires them to freely tell their first stories, optimally supporting language acquisition. Finding items in the search-and-find images provides children with a first sense of achievement and boosts their confidence.
