Overview

Yippee! It's a snow day. Lucille is jealous when her big brother and sister head outside to play in their sleek snow pants and jackets while she's stuck inside putting on her snowsuit. Literally stuck--her zipper won't zip and she can't get her snowsuit over her boots. Worst of all, "Snowsuits are for babies and I'm not a baby!" she yells. With a little help from Mommy, Lucille finally runs outside to join the snowy fun, and that's when she discovers that perhaps snowsuits are indeed best for making the most of a snow day.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

Lucille has so much trouble getting her snowsuit on that she is almost too tired to go outside and join her brother and sister playing in the snow.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this disappointingly plodding and predictable tale by the creators of the lively Lunch Bunnies, piglet Lucille struggles to get into her one-piece snowsuit after her older siblings, Franklin and Frances, dash outdoors in their parkas, ski pants and hats to play in the snow. As Lucille waits and waits for her mother's help, her boot becomes stuck in her pant leg, her zipper sticks halfway up and--the greatest indignity--she begins to sweat. "Snowsuits are for babies," Lucille says, twice. Her grumbling ceases once Franklin and Frances cajole her into joining them outside. A rousing snowball fight ensues, during which Lucille finds their hats on the ground and fills them with snow--a move that feels inserted to demonstrate to the reader the superiority of the hooded snowsuit. Franklin and Frances grow cold and go inside to warm up, but Lucille, still cozy in her snowsuit, stays outdoors until the others return and they "all went triple on the sled." The story ends abruptly as readers turn the page to find the trio suddenly indoors again, with Lucille announcing that her snowsuit "kept me snuggly warm and I didn't even sweat." Hafner's spirited pictures of the porcine frolickers fortify the narrative, but they don't address another flaw, namely, that the target audience is past the snowsuit age and may not be especially interested in Lucille's complaints.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Lucille wants to join her two older siblings playing outside during a snow day. They dress quickly in their sleek parkas and ski pants and head outside while the preschooler struggles with her awkward, babyish snowsuit. First she tries to put it on over her boots and they get stuck. The zipper snags and the hood is itchy. All of this discomfort leads to pouting and the young pig refuses to join in the fun until her older brother carries her out. She is immediately caught up in the joy of making snow angels, throwing snowballs, and sledding. Her siblings go in to warm up, but she stays outside, snuggly warm in her snowsuit. Whimsical watercolors capture the emotions of the pig family as well as cozy indoor scenes and glorious outdoor play. The format is large enough for groups to share Lucille's very real frustrations and her ultimate success and day of fun.-Jean Gaffney, Dayton and Montgomery County Public Library, OH Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
From The Critics
In Kathryn Lasky's Lucille's Snowsuit, Lucille the pig just can't wait to join her older brother and sister in their winter fun. But first, she's got to get herself into her snowsuit. However her boot gets stuck, the zipper catches, the snowsuit is hot and besides, snowsuits are for babies which she is not! Why can't she have a sleek parka and ski pants like her sister? But when Lucille finally gets out into the snow she discovers that a snowsuit, no matter how much she hates hers, is the perfect thing to wear when you want to have the most fun of anyone on a snowy day. Lucille's Snowsuit is a thoroughly charming story for young readers and perfectly showcased by Marylin Hafner's winning illustrations.
Kirkus Reviews
Snowsuits, the bane of every child's snow-filled days, are the focus of this hilarious tale. Poor Lucille just wants to frolic in the snow with her older siblings, who are stylishly attired in sleek snow pants and parkas, complete with jaunty little hats. However, Lucille's mother decrees she must wear her dreaded snowsuit, and Lasky (First Painter, see above) comically captures the epic struggle required to get one reluctant tot into it. Lucille's tussle with her attire entails all the calamities that can befall youngsters endeavoring to dress themselves; a jammed zipper, a sock that mysteriously disappears into the abyss of a pant leg—resulting in one overheated piglet. " ‘I'm hot. I'm sweating. My sock's lost. My zipper's stuck. I hate snowsuits!' Lucille roared." Lucille's mother is almost saintly in her compassionate but unyielding stance, gently coaxing her frustrated child to don her suit. Eventually the steamy piglet is lured outside for some snow play and Lucille makes a miraculous discovery. Toasty in her snowsuit, she outlasts her siblings in the frosty air. While Franklin and Frances retreat indoors to defrost, Lucille is free to enjoy the splendor of a winter's day. Hafner's boldly colored illustrations are uproariously funny, deftly conveying Lucille's evolving moods through her body language and facial expressions, giving readers a real sense of her personality. Mothers everywhere will send up a cheer for this wonderfully funny tale that shows mother does know best. (Picture book. 5-8)
