Just outside Bailey’s front door, snow was falling in clumps from the evergreen boughs where the sun was shining, but it remained frozen solid in the shade, creating an ice-cold winter playground perfect for exploring.
“Mom,” Bailey shouts. “Have you seen my snowshoes?”
“I’m going out for a walk in the woods.”
Bailey’s excitement to learn more about what exists in his backyard forest takes him on the path to an extraordinary discovery.

A Porcupine’s Promenade is a special story that envelops you in the memorable uniqueness that surprise encounters with backyard wildlife can bring. The writing and illustrations capture the wonder and magic of winter in a way that will encourage readers to strike out on their own nature expeditions.”
