REVIEW: Snow Days

Snow Days
Author: Deborah Kerbel
Illustrator: Miki Sato
Pajama Press
Ages 3-8

Ahhh to be a kid in winter. There’s magic to the snow when you’re little! Deborah Kerbel captures the wonder that different kinds of winter snow hold in the minds of the preschool set in this charming book. The writing is charming. Each spread featuring a rhyming couplet taking us through the “First snow, surprise snow: /Nature’s sparkly magic show” to the Last snow, tame and . . . Winter’s quiet wave goodbye” and everything in between including the not so great slush and sleet!

Miki Sato’s illustrations steal the show here. Each spread features kids of every hue marveling at the magic of the winter season — playing, building snowmen, shoveling, even trudging through the wintry landscape.

The book comes with a great list of experiments to try with young kids.

I’m not a winter/cold/snow person myself, but this book almost made me want to become one. What a treat!
