Just outside my window,
There are tracks in the snow.
Who made the tracks? Where do they go?

A little girl follows tracks outside her window after a fresh snowfall, only to realize that the tracks in the snow are her own from the day before-and that they lead her home. This diminutive and sweet picture book is as cozy as a cup of hot chocolate.

Like Ezra Jack Keats' The Snowy Day, this lovely celebration of snow and winter is just right for the littlest readers.

Editorial Reviews

"The simple rhyming text encourages chanting along; Yee's colored-pencil illustrations are meticulously drawn." -The Horn Book Magazine"The gentle, rhyming text makes an ideal read-aloud, and young listeners will chime in on the repeated phrases." -School Library Journal"This unassuming book will be enjoyed for its petite trim size, its wintry charm, and the gently humorous solution to its small mystery." -Booklist"Thanks to Yee's austere, feathery strokes, which resemble colored pencils on textured paper, readers will feel all the invigorating chill and quiet beauty of winter." -Publishers Weekly"The soft illustrations provide a comfortable setting for the story and a feeling of safety and happiness. . . . Young children will enjoy this tale of safe adventure and discovery on one's own, with animal companions and an afternoon snack at the end." -Armchair Interviews
