On the day before Christmas, Snow Bunny meets her friends to go sledge riding down the hill. If only the wind would not be so icy! Mouse feels terribly cold and heads home. Snow Bunny, Fox and Bear slide on the ice in circles and in wavy lines until the sun is blocked by winter clouds. So freezing fox trots home, too. When Snow Bunny and Bear want to collect pinecones it starts snowing. Bear is chilled to the bones and begins to tremble with cold. He, too, doesn’t want to play anymore and he goes home.
When sad Snow Bunny finds a shining silver coin in the snow, she buys a big ball of red wool in Mr. Badger’s shop. On Christmas Day Mouse is given a warm hat, Fox is given a soft scarf and Bear gets a warm vest. But the friends don’t have any present for Snow Bunny! It doesn’t matter, Snow Bunny values their friendship as her biggest gift.
