When the winter comes many changes occur in nature. There is a common question on each page then it is answered. Where oh where do the leaves all go when winter comes and the cold winds blow? The leaves go tumble tumbling down. The book describes the changes with leaves, flowers, caterpillars, songbirds, field mice, deer, fish, and finally the small child. The pictures are beautiful as they capture nature’s changes. When Winter Comes can be used while studying animals and explain what occurs when the weather becomes cold.
