Book Description

A beautifully illustrated story that explores how the tiniest creatures prepare for chilly months.

As he gathers food for the winter, Anxious Ant disturbs the garden peace. But Little Spider has a better idea—Seed Magic!

Seen through the eyes of the creatures preparing for winter, this kind-hearted tale of coping with the seasons, with its engaging language, will take you on a fascinating journey into the miniature natural world.
