Publisher's Summary

The green leaves on the trees are changing to red and gold. A chilly wind blows from the north. Mrs. Cottontail and her littlest rabbit watch a flock of wild geese in the sky. “Cold winter days are near,” she tells him. All through the woods, creatures of every size are busy. Squirrels are storing acorns and seeds under logs. The ground hog is growing a warm fur coat. The blue bird begins his long trip south. They must hurry—soon the big snow is coming.
Berta and Elmer Hader have delighted youngsters for decades with this captivating tale of woodland animals preparing for the long winter. Birds flutter and four-legged creatures scamper from the page with John McDonough’s sparkling performance.

okay children's short story

This would be an enjoyable little nature story, except for the periodical ringing of a xylophone at the end of every sentence. which ruined the whole story for me, and made no sense.
