Theme:Snow has a special magic of its own, which makes winter a season of wonder and fun.

This book is a collection of stories and poems with snow as a common theme.

LeVar travels to Jackson Hole, Wyoming where viewers experience a variety of ways to beat winter’s chills and enjoy the thrills. Playing in the snow, constructing a snow person, riding in a horse sleigh and snowshoe hiking are a few of the things LeVar does in the snow. This episode also takes viewers to Alaska to find out about the Iditarod—a famous dog sled race.
