Where do writers get their ideas? Check out the story-behind-the-story book trailer for If It's Snowy and You Know It, Clap Your Paws! (Sterling, 2013). From the promotional copy:
Kim Norman and Liza Woodruff, the team behind the delightful Ten on the Sled, have created another irresistible winter-themed romp.
This humorous variation on the classic song “If You're Happy and You Know It” introduces a group of adorable animals playing joyfully in the snow. They tumble on the tundra, catch snowflakes on their tongues, sculpt snowcritters, and make a frosty fort. But can they go with the flow when their wild adventure drifts in a surprising direction?
Young readers will laugh and sing along!
