PAWPRINTS IN THE SNOW
If your kids like animals and poems that rhyme, they’re going to love the catchy poems and colorful wildlife photos in PAWPRINTS IN THE SNOW: How God Protects Animals from the Cold. Even if they’re too young to understand the words, they will still be drawn to the rhythmic sounds as you read to them, and be fascinated by the photos of everything from wolves and bunnies to polar bears and butterflies. Each poem combines faith with science, reflecting how each animal was uniquely created by God and has special attributes to keep it warm.
The fluffy bunny photo on the bright blue cover is sure to capture the attention of a child…or even an animal-loving adult. Open PAWPRINTS IN THE SNOW and you’ll find the inside wildlife photos as good or better than the cover. Each poem has a full-page photo on the facing page and has a “fun fact” about the featured animal. This 27-page paperback is fairly thin and lightweight – easy to toss in a diaper bag, tote, or suitcase, making it perfect for car, bus or plane rides.
Kids will learn in the poems and fun facts that animals were created by God in special ways to survive in polar regions or cold seasons. Examples include: Moose have long legs to walk through snow drifts; polar bears have hollow hairs, which help them float; monarchs fly to California and Mexico in winter; whales have a thick layer of blubber; and so on. In the final poem titled “Sleepyheads,” kids learn about hibernation in a catchy, whimsical poem that lists many animals that hibernate. The book concludes with “What about YOU?” and tells children that God cares about them even more than the animals.
Twenty-three full color wildlife photos and one multicultural photo of children fill the pages of PAWPRINTS. Photos are professional quality and will fascinate kids of all ages.
Kids will learn that faith and science go together, and that God made sure his creatures had just what they needed to survive. Kids will also gain a better understanding of and respect for animals. The best part about the book is that the poems and photos will make learning feel like fun. Perfect for families, homeschoolers and Christian classrooms, daycares and preschools.
Poems range in length, making this a book that your kids can enjoy from the time they’re toddlers to adolescents. The book targets ages 3-9, but younger and older kids will enjoy it too!
