Alma absolutely loves walking home from school in the spring – right when the weather is still crisp but the sun already feels warm on your face. It’s wonderful to breathe in the fresh air that tingles your nostrils and to know that summer is just around the corner. Alma is well aware that you must still wear a hat and wrap a scarf tight around your neck, not to mention button up your jacket. She’s no silly little tot, of course! The snow is so soft it begs you to touch it, and the icicles’ beauty makes it hard to keep your hands to yourself. Yet, that night, Alma doesn’t feel quite right. She suddenly has shivers from head to toe, and not even her wool blanket can warm her up.
