This book is a delight to the eye, the ear, the imagination, and feelings. Wow! I already summed it up. The pictures are captivating. The poetic text is fun to read and to hear. The imaginary part, the poetic nature, and feelings remind me of 10,000 White Horses by Betsy B. Lee where a child pretends that the foam in the waves contains white horses which she will catch and ride to shore. I think I enjoy both of these books as much as the children do. Like my title of my review says: it is delightful.

Developing Storytime Programs for children ranging in ages from two to age five, it can be a challange to locate a book which captures the interest of the youngest ones, and gives the older children a "message" they can walk away with.
Snow Ponies worked wonderfully with all age levels. The youngest were mesmerized by the life-like illustrations done by Jason Cockcroft. The older children at the end of the reading galloped, danced and nickered, imitating the ponies' play.
Cynthia Cotten's magical message of 'Old Man Winter' left all captivated and spellbound. We all viewed snow much more positively! Snow Ponies was a delight to present to an audience.

Snow Ponies is a perfect addition to your child's library. The story is excellent, with a hint of magic that actually makes the reader feel as if they are running with the Snow Ponies! The illustrations are awe-inspiring and complement the story beautifully. Buy this book! You'll love it!

Shared (in groups of thirty) with five hundred students 4th -6th grade. Beautiful illustrations capture the magical frolicing of Snow Ponies released by Old Man Winter. The rhythm of a winter storm is felt in this simple tale. Adults smile. Children love it.

This book was published in 2001. I hope it will become a classic which stays in print for generations. When you buy a copy, you might want to buy two (and save one of them for the next generation) in case it goes out of print as so many books do. I agree with the many enthusiastic comments by the other reviewers.
