The snow is falling, crisp and white
But something's hiding out of sight . . .

When snow falls in the city, it leaves a peaceful blanket of white. But as the city starts to wake up, that white soon gets stomped and tromped all down. Join in the fun of a snowy day in the city, from snowball fights and snowmen to snow forts and sledding. But beware. City snow isn't as peaceful as it seems, and surprises wait at every turn!

Who Doesn't Love a Snow Day!!

Snow Days are the best days. When a child wakes up to the beauty of fallen snow all they can think of is to get out in it! The beautiful rhyming pulls you through this lovely story. The artwork is pleasing as you start with soft colors and crescendo into much brighter ones. You get the same feeling from the words that take you from a peaceful walk into a full-blown snowball fight. The descriptive words allow you to feel what is happening as if you were there in the snow! This is a great book for children who are in parts of the country or world who have never experienced snow. The children who have frolicked in snow will understand completely what the children in the book are experiencing. Loved it!

Snow Day Comeback!

When the pandemic hit and everyone was home—snow days became a thing of the past. Thankfully, this winter, with most children back in school, the possibility of a snow day becomes a reality again. What kid doesn’t love a snow day? This book really captures the excitement kids and parents feel when they get to experience the magic of a snow day. As a child, I remember thinking that a snow day was such a gift—an excuse to play or lounge or explore. And then as a parent of young children, it was extra special because I got to skip a day of work and just spend time with my kids. Kids and parents will enjoy cuddling up in a chair, watching it snow, sipping hot chocolate, and reading this darling book!

Snow day!

What a great winter book! My kids wait eagerly every year for the first snow so they can go sledding and build snowmen. It’s still a few months away for us, but this definitely got them in the spirit. And I loved being able to share the differences between the snow days they know in the suburbs and the city experience. The art is gorgeous, too. The artist did an amazing job capturing the city. A great read to get ready for winter, and definitely one we’ll be reading again and again this winter as we warm up from the hours of outside play!
