Snow! Snow! Snow! by Lee Harper

In simple text and lovely illustrations, the author chronicles one (dog) family's snow day sledding adventure.

What I thought: This book is exuberant. The topic is perfect. I haven't met a child yet who doesn't enjoy snow days and they activities they bring (sledding!). The illustrations were great--the dogs are colorful. But it's the winter landscape that caught my eye. Snow is so much more than white and Harper did an excellent job of capturing that.

Story Time Idea: Winter themed story time. Pair with Millions of Snowflakes by Mary McKenna Siddals, Oh by Kevin Henkes, Jingle-Jingle by Nicola Smee, and Snow by Uri Shulevitz.
