From days of old, people have been trying to predict winter weather using nature as a guide. According to folklore and farmer's wisdom, the bristly coat colors of the woolly bear caterpillar are an accurate predictor of the winter to come. But just how do the caterpillars know what colors to wear for the coming winter? Are they born that way? Do they meet and discuss what colors to wear? All your questions will be answered in this whimsical story blended with homespun knowledge and observations that have been passed down through generations of farmers and country folks.

In this story, learn how the woolly bear caterpillar wears just the right colors so all the forest animals know how to prepare for the quickly approaching winter months. See how all the forest animals are especially concerned about what preparations to make for the coming winter, as nature's signs are popping up all over Sassafras Valley. From hornet's nests, woodland ponds, and the conversations of birds, the animals know the signs are there. Will winter come early, or will it be late? Will the animals have time to prepare? Watch as caterpillars from far and wide gather and compare evidence in order to decide what colors to wear so the forest animals can prepare for the winter ahead.
