Winter Waits

By Lynn Plourde

Winter sprints
across the way.
"Father, Father,
come on, let's play."

Father Time smiles
and kisses his son.
"Not now, I must work,
my littlest one."

So Winter waits
for an hour or two,
painting the grass
with a frosty hue...

While Winter waits for his father, he finds ways to amuse himself. Winter "whistens and glistens" the world in frost, "whizzles and whittles" ice sculptures, and "snizzes and snips" snowflakes. At last, Father Time turns his full attention to his son, and they "frisk and frolic away."

Lynn Plourde, author of the best-selling picture book Wild Child, reunites with acclaimed illustrator Greg Couch to continue the story of Nature's family with this exquisite book that captures the joy of a father-son relationship.
