Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The softly illustrated snowy scenes of a perfect winter day spent playing with Poppa, and the short, snappy text make this a nice addition to the "Mouse's First" series. The little mouse and his poppa go out to play in the snow. First, Poppa goes sledding. "Woosh, swoosh!" Then Mouse decides he can do that too, and he does. "Pliff, Ploof!" Poppa goes skating and Mouse joins in, gliding across the ice. Then Poppa teaches Mouse how to make snow angels. Mouse watches Poppa make a snow house; Mouse makes one of his own. All through the book Poppa shows Mouse how to do things. Although Mouse does not do everything quite as well as Poppa, he has a wonderful time. Finally Poppa rolls a big snow ball and Mouse rolls a slightly smaller one. With just a little work, the snowballs are made into a surprise for Mouse--a round little snow mouse. This will be fun to read just before taking a little one out to romp in the snow. It is also a fine book to share when curling up on the sofa on a cold winter's day. 2005, Simon & Schuster, Ages 2 to 6.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-With the same tender charm that has made other books about Mouse's first experiences popular, Thompson and Erdogan explore the joy that comes with a first encounter with snow. Mouse gets to sled, skate, and build a grand snow house with his father's unswerving support. "Good for you!" exclaims Poppa after Mouse swishes down a hill. Other efforts are encouraged with "Hooray!," "Good work!," and "Wonderful!" Finally the two build "A frosty little snow mouse just like you!" and the book concludes with wishes for a "Happy winter." In the sweet acrylic paintings, the snow is cool and luminous, yet the scenes remain warm. Child-friendly language, complete with some simple sound effects and repeated phrases, make this title a solid winter read-aloud.-Piper L. Nyman, formerly at Fairfield Civic Center Library, CA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
