PreS-Gr 1-Pip and Posy are bundled up and ready to play in the snow. They have a wonderful time sledding and making snow angels until they clash over whether to build a snowmouse or a snowrabbit. They get so angry that they throw snow and push until both are cold and sad. "Then Posy did a very kind thing." She apologizes to her friend, and he does the same. Then they go inside to play. The story and illustrations are packed with warmth, humor, and sympathetic understanding of the little dramas of young children's lives. Text is clear and black against boldly colored backgrounds, and the bright illustrations are filled with humorous details.-Amelia Jenkins, Juneau Public Library, AKα(c) Copyright 2013.
