The Big Snuggle-Up

Publisher: Anderson Press

This charming poem by Brian Pattern sees a little boy open his door to a scarecrow and mouse caught out in a snow storm only to find there are many more animals that need to come in from the cold. The poem’s repetition of the list of animals coming in through the door allows young readers to partake in the tale by remembering who comes next. 

The beautifully detailed illustrations by Nicola Bayley capture the warmth and magic of this delightful story.
