"The illustrations, in muted oils, show the jubilant family anticipating the snow and the activities that they would undertake. The figures fill the pages giving a sense of intimacy, and the scenes are viewed from a variety of perspectives, adding to the excitement and chaos. Children (and parents) will identify with the strong wish for a day away from the routine, as well as the mad rush when things don't pan out." --Booklist
"The mostly two-page illustrations are rich in color, texture, perspective, and kinesthetic energy." --School Library Journal
"Laminack generates the increasingly hopeful energy to a fever pitch... Gustavson creates a festive mood with his oil illustrations, so luxurious and ample they feel like bundles of winter clothing, topped with bright scarves." --Kirkus
What a fantastic book! My sister who teaches kindergarten lent this book to my children (ages 2 and 4). The illustrations are wonderful and the paperback book is large in size. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Busy mom of two
My students loved this, especially since we don't usually get snow in Savannah. The surprise ending made the laugh. Must read.Published 21 months ago by Paulina G. Tawil
