Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Excited when the weather report predicts a snowstorm, Keller's series heroine, a saucy pink pig, "is full of her usual high spirits," said PW. Ages 3-up.
Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1 Like most young children, plump pig Geraldine waits with impatient anticipation for the first big snowstorm of the season. While the neighbors go about their preparations, stocking shelves and supplementing leisure reading supplies, Geraldine gazes longingly at the still-dry sky. Geraldine is a winning character, as are her animal neighbors. Readers will see and feel her frustration, impatience, and final satisfaction as the snow does indeed fall, and she gets her long-awaited sled ride. With its soft, clean colors and illustrations large enough for group sharing, this is the perfect choice to pair with Keats' The Snowy Day (Viking, 1962) for a winter story session for toddlers. It's fresh, appealing, and perfectly delightful. Trev Jones, "School Library Journal"

In a nicely illustrated book Holly Keller tells the story of Geraldine, who is waiting for the big snowstorm so that she can try out her new sled. The story also shows how others in the neighborhood get ready for snow. I am a librarian who regularly does story programs for children. I have used this story for many years and with many groups. It is always well received by kids and teachers. My relatives [young children] like it too.

Geraldine can't wait for the big snow that has been predicted. She has everything ready, including her sled. The neighbors are getting ready, too, by buying apples to make pies, getting books from the library and having seeds ready for hungry birds. Geraldine knows that the snow has begun before she opens her eyes in the morning because she hears the snowplow.

I taught kindergarten for many years, and I know how excited children get about big snows. As I write this in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, we are getting the first major snow of the winter. I'm excited, too!
