Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The magic qualities of winter's first snow find a voice in Carlstrom's ( Baby-O ; Jesse Bear, What Will You Wear? ) latest picture book. From their window two children marvel at the flakes beginning to fall outdoors. They suit up and head out to play in the winter wonderland. Whether the snow is crunching under boots, blowing before the plow, holding the impressions of animal tracks and angel shapes or shining in the moonlight--it speaks volumes to the children who have "wise and patient" eyes. Carlstrom's lofty text reflects the mystical properties of snow, though some of her poetic language and the lack of a strong plot line may put off younger readers. Dyer's ( Talking Like the Rain ; Piggins ) watercolors skillfully straddle the worlds of fantasy and reality by picturing "buttoned, hooded, zipped and mittened" children flapping out snow angels on the ground, as well as snowflakes in the shape of feathers, or icy, ghostlike figures dancing in the woods. The broad range of color, shape and perspective here also helps avert a boring sameness. Ages 4-8.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book several years ago as a gift but never gave it to the child. It is a beautiful book, and I felt that she would not appreciate it as much as I did. I found it recently and gave it to my 2-year-old daughter. Even though she has lots of other books, this has become her absolute favorite bedtime story. I'm not sure that she completely understands all of it, but she certainly feels the magical quality and rhythm of it. She also loves the beautiful, dreamy illustrations. We never get tired of reading it.
