Mama, Will It Snow Tonight?

The Story
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.
