Simply a Jane Yolen snowy winter classic – need I say more?

LONG P.L.A.Y.-filled companion activity adventure suggestion list for Winter Bees:

  • Challenge: Have you ever thought of bees in the snowy winter? Where do they go? Have you walked by them in the woods and not even known it?
  • Super Challenge: What other animals and insects are nearby in the winter cleverly hidden from view? How do you know? (*see snake lullaby poem!)
  • Super-Duper Challenge: Have you ever wondered how trees hang in year after year, season after season? What does the spirit and the survival of the trees tell us?
