It's a bright winter's day bursting with activity as this adorable cast of animal characters bundles up to skate, slide, sled, ski and more. The day begins with the friends dressing warmly for all the fun ahead. Over the course of an exhilarating day the friends take a twirl on the ice, pass the puck, slip and slide and zippity-zip down hills, half-pipes and tracks - ending up back home warming themselves by the fire with hot chocolate.

With a mix of competitive and non-competitive sports, the book highlights winter activity at any level of play. Snowy sports featured include bobsleigh, curling, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, freestyle skiing, hockey, ice skating, luge, skeleton, ski jumping, sledge hockey, snowboarding and speed skating.

Each page has an illustration of a piece of winter clothing that makes up a complete cold-weather outfit by book's end. The bold and cheerful illustrations are perfect for encouraging youngsters to embrace the chilly weather with their friends. Dress warmly and let's go play!
