The last leaves of autumn are falling. The wind is blowing and the bushes are bare. The earth is ready for winter, and so are three mothers—a fox, a hare, and a human—whose young ones anxiously await the first snow of winter. Each evening they ask their mothers the same question:
“Mama, will it snow tonight?”
The snow may not come this night, but soon, when the moon looks right, the mothers know the snow will fall.
