For many children, winter is the most wonderful time of the year. If it snows then you can go sledding and build a snowman, make angels in the snow or throw snowballs. At home you might bake cookies, do a craft project, or feed the birds, and there are many special holidays to celebrate around the New Year. This book explores how nature changes with the winter season, how animals adapt, and what we humans are up to at this time of the year.What Do We Do in Winter is the first in a series of four books, each focusing on one of the seasons by accompanying a family through a full year. Readers will see what they wear, what they do, what they celebrate, what happens in their garden, and more as the seasons change.

The Author

Andrea Erne was born in 1958 in Stuttgart, Germany. She studied German, politics and cultural studies and began her career as an editor for a daily newspaper. She then moved to a large children's book publisher, and later began working freelance as an editor and author for book publishers and newspapers.

The Illustrator

Susanne Szesny was born in 1965. She studied visual communication in Münster and received a diploma in design. After her studies, she worked freelance as an illustrator of games books, board books and picture books. In her opinion, a book should transport an inner value (a message, a teaching) and be a source of inspiration for children and adults equally. With her pictures she tries to build a bridge between the emotional worlds of children and adults.
