Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Amusing ink-and-watercolor illustrations accompany rhyming text. Listeners will enjoy finding funny bits as well as watching that cat." — Kirkus Reviews

"New snow, that most joyful of childhood happenings, is celebrated in verse that will have young audiences chanting along by the second reading. Westcott propels the proceedings with spring-loaded, cartoony drawings and cheery colors. Just the thing after a spirited romp in the snow - or when everyone is wishing for one." — The Horn Book Magazine

"The rhyming text uses simple language to highlight familiar activities. The cartoon illustrations are filled with action and humor and reflect the excitement of a snowy day."

School Library Journal

"Always upbeat and often comical, the artwork captures and extends the joyful tone of the text. This is one winter picture book that lets you feel the snow. An irresistible addition to winter story hours." — Booklist

"The illustrations have a clarity that will carry across the room, and the bouncy text...reads itself, making this a good choice for winter story hours-have the marshmallows handy."

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Children's Literature
This story told in rhyme is a bright and bouncy account of a little girl's activities in the snow. The illustrations are a perfect foil for the words that describe her every effort. Kids will laugh gleefully to see her struggling to get dressed and head for the snow-covered world outdoors. A little boy from the neighborhood and her dad join her to build a snowman. Meanwhile the dog busily uncovers a sled. Naturally they all have to try riding down the hill even if it results in a spill. When Mommy arrives to announce she has made cocoa for all, there is another mad scramble into the house. All ends happily with the child looking out the window to enjoy the snowman. When youngsters gather for a "snowy" story time, this book is sure to fit in perfectly. Everyone can readily relate to everything they see and hear. 2004, Melanie Kroupa Books, Ages 4 up.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-A young girl wakes up and is excited to see snow on the ground. She drags her father out of bed and gets ready to go out to play, putting on her shirt, pants, socks, and snowsuit. Running outside, she exclaims, "Hello, snow!/Hello, sunshine!/Hello, wind!/Snowflakes tickle/On my chin." When her neighbor comes out, they build a snowman together and then go sledding. After they take a couple of spills, the friends go inside for some cocoa. The rhyming text uses simple language to highlight familiar activities. Done in pen-and-ink and watercolors, the cartoon illustrations are filled with action and humor and reflect the excitement of a snowy day. Vibrant colors make the indoor scenes warm and cozy, while the characters' brightly hued outdoor clothing stands out nicely against the white backgrounds. Although Ezra Jack Keats's The Snowy Day (Viking, 1962) remains the first choice about this popular topic, Hello, Snow! makes an adequate addition.-Rebecca Luhman, Greece Central School District, Rochester, NY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Peering out her window into a world of whiteness, one little girl can't resist the call of the snow. "Hello, morning . . . / Goodbye, night. / I see something / Cold and white!" After pulling her sleepy parents from bed, she begins dressing for the cold. Even a thumb caught in her zipper and a hat that has a hard time staying off her eyes cannot dampen her enthusiasm. Building a snowman and shoveling a giant mountain of snow give way to sled rides. Only the lure of doughnuts and hot cocoa can pull her and her friend away from a full and freezing day. Amusing ink-and-watercolor illustrations accompany rhyming text as she steps on the cat's tail or crashes her sled, sending even the dog flying. Dad gets the worst of it as the sled plows into him, too. Typically, Westcott adds a lot to whatever else is going on and listeners will enjoy finding funny bits as well as watching that cat.
