Now It Is Winter
"Will spring ever come? Will there be black raspberries and cream in my breakfast bowl?" asks an impatient young mouse, to which his mother patiently replies, "Yes . . . but now it is winter. Now there is oatmeal in your bowl." More questions about spring follow. In answer to each, Mother points out something that is enjoyable in the wintertime. When the little mouse longs to roll down steep, grassy hills; play tag with his friends in the park; and make paper kites, Mom reminds him that he can sail downhill on his sled, ice skate with his friends, and make a snowman.
