Luckily, big brother Davy remembers Grandpa Rabbit’s wise advice—stay in one place, keep warm, help will come soon. And so, cozy and warm, under a large fir tree with glowing branches, Davy and Mia tell stories and sing songs. Until at last—the family tracks down the two snow bunnies. Davy worries that it’s his fault, but his parents praise him for his responsible decisions.
