Product Description:

*Starred Review* Snow is not an uncommon subject in picture books, but few have both the grace and exuberance of this lovely collaboration featuring Rylant's evocative words and Stringer's entrancing paintings. This celebration looks at snow in all its permutations and considers the effects it has on those the flakes fall upon. Is the best snow "the snow that comes softly in the night . . . the snow that brings you peace". Perhaps it's the heavy snow that sends you home from school, or the delicate fall that makes you notice the lace on trees. The artwork, whether oversize pictures of children at play, cosy household vignettes, or double-page spreads so packed with snow readers will want to reach in and make a snowball, is full of joy. Yet even in the midst of all this happiness, Rylant reminds readers "that nothing lasts forever except memories." Fortunately, children will have this book in hand so they can experience the pleasure of a wintry day even after the snow is gone and the world has turned a soft green. Preschool-Grade 2. --Ilene Cooper
