It's Snowing!

Overview

Baby is fast asleep when Mama spies the first flakes of his first snowfall. “It’s snowing!” she sings. “Baby, it’s snowing!” Mama bundles Baby in thick, warm furs and scrunches into her coat. Out into the snow they go, to see it, smell it, hear it, taste it, touch it—and play in it. Olivier Dunrea’s exquisite hymn to snow is the story of a solitary night when a mother introduces her baby to the beauty and pleasure of falling snow.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-In this joyous winter song, a mother lovingly shares a snowfall with her baby. The warm earthy shades of brown and the softly contoured shapes of her sturdy northern home are echoed in the snow-covered rocks, providing a comforting physical setting for the poetic text. "It's a dark dark, cold cold night," and Mama bundles up herself and Baby, goes out into the sparkling night, and lovingly implores the child to smell and hear and taste and touch the snow. She builds a snow troll and takes the infant riding on a sled and an ice sculpture of a bear. Baby laughs, gets a red nose, and then is tucked back into his cradle while Mama enjoys a hot drink in front of the fire. The gouache paintings are beautifully executed, evoking a sublime winter wonderland. This is a lovely, satisfying story to share at bedtime. Pair it with Uri Shulevitz's Snow (Farrar, 1998).-Susan Pine, New York Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Against a shadowy pine forest at once mysterious and peaceful, a mother-human, or perhaps a sort of forest gnome-introduces her well-swaddled baby to the pleasures of a snowy night. As soon as Mama sees flakes coming down, she wraps herself and Baby in thick furs and "trundles" out, holding Baby up to see, hear, smell, touch, and taste the snow, then demonstrates sledding down a hill, building a snow troll, and other joys. So evocative is Dunrea's (Gossie, p. 879, etc.) finely detailed art that viewers will practically be able to feel the winter air on their own faces, and experience the deep quiet. The two retreat indoors at last, and the intimate episode ends with nearly the same words with which it begins: "Mama rocks the cradle. The cradle rocks Baby. Baby softly sleeps. Mama sighs and nods her head. Baby sighs and sucks his thumb." There's a feeling of reverence beneath the joy that connects this with both the adult sensibility of Robert Frost's Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening (Illus. by Susan Jeffers, 1978) and the more childlike pleasures of Ezra Jack Keats's Snowy Day (1962).
