Its Snowing Its Snowing!

Winter is here again! What should you do on a cold winter’s day? Go to the library of course! While you’re here, why not try reading some great books about winter?

Here’s some books to get you started:

Brian’s winter (Companion book to: Hatchet and The river)
by Gary Paulsen

Instead of being rescued from a plane crash, as in the author’s book Hatchet, this story portrays what would have happened to Brian had he been forced to survive a winter in the wilderness with only his survival pack and hatchet.
