|First Snow in the Woods is authors third New York Times Bestseller
Authors of Stranger in the Woods and Lost in the Woods release third book in series!
Carl R. Sams II and Jean Stoicks third childrens book, First Snow in the Woods, takes readers on a beautiful photographic journey deep into the autumn woods as the animals of the forest get ready for the years first winter storm. They hear the cries from the great gray owl who came down from the far north carrying the warning, Winter is coming early this year! Prepare.
From the very first page, readers will be fascinated by the exquisite photographs of wildlife amid a background of vibrant autumn reds and golds. As an early winter storm forms in the north, the fuzzy woolly bear caterpillar is chew, chew, chewing, a chipmunk teeters on a branch munching a tiny red crabapple, a delicate green hummingbird prepares for travel to a tropical garden thousands of miles away.
Iole Lucchese, co-president of Scholastic Canada, one of the country's leading publishers and distributors of children's books, calls First Snow in the Woods another stunner. It is so SO beautiful really, really spectacular, she said.
The story is as enchanting as the captivating images. Like their first two books, gentle lessons of nature are immersed in a story perfect for children of all ages. Fall is the season of change, explains co-author Jean Stoick, a former middle school art teacher. We wanted to show how each creature prepares for the winter season in their own way. They must each follow their own heartsong.
We are really excited with how our third book turned out, Sams II said. We hope children will learn that change and sometimes fear of change is a normal part of life. We all have to listen to our heartsongs.
First Snow in the Woods is the third book in the In The Woods series that is currently #5 on the New York Times best-sellers list. This is the first time theyve included us in with the series books right there with Harry Potter, said Sams. Its exciting to have all of our books on the list at the same time. The authors self-published their first book, Stranger in the Woods, which sold over 1.5 million copies. Their second book, Lost in the Woods, has sold more than 300,000 copies. The couple has won dozens of awards for both their books and the companion movies based on their books, Lost in the Woods: The Movie and Stranger in the Woods: The Movie.
