When it snows in the winter, the fields and the hills are white. There is snow on the trees, and the forest is quiet because there are not many animals or birds. Some animals sleep all winter, and the brids fly south. On the rivers there is ice, and the fish hide under it. It’s cold, and all the animals, birds and fish are waiting for spring. In the winter children like to play outside. They like to play in the snow because they can make a snowman and throw snowballs. They can ski and skate on the ice. They enjoy playing in the snow.
