The snow knows
where the rabbit goes.
It knows the hush-shush
of the owl’s wing. 

In this deceptively simple children’s picture book, a pair of award-winning storytellers share the joys of winter. A lyrical prose poem, The Snow Knows introduces readers of all ages to animals both domestic (a tabby cat by the wood stove) and wild (a slinking lynx; a choir of coyotes), celebrating wilderness and outdoor play. This beautiful book is destined to be a perennial winter favourite.

An award-winning children's author from Moncton, New Brunswick, Jennifer McGrath has published two middle-grade adventure novels, and two picture books. The Snow Knows was the 2017 recipient of the prestigious Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award, presented to the year's best Canadian picture book for children.
