Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Reminiscent of Mother Goose rhymes, newcomer Chaconas's musical verse sequence nostalgically harks back to a quieter time while preserving its appeal to contemporary children. A father bundles up his toddler daughter: "Daddy, tie her hat on tight./ Tie that baby's hat on tight./ The wind will blow with all its might./ On a wintry morning." Describing the progression of the morning's events, the text skimps on dynamic tension but compensates with a cornucopia of child-pleasing images: the father and daughter hitch up the horse and ride in their sleigh, look for animal tracks ("Daddy, find a bunny track./ Quick-foot, light-foot bunny track") and buy a "tawny, brindled pup,/ One ear down and one ear up." Like the verses, Johnson's (Alphabet City) paintings possess a timeless tranquility. Despite the huge snowflakes, the illustrations are full of warmth and comfort. A close-up of the father's hands as he cradles the baby's "tiny tender toes," the baby asleep on his chest as he sings a "cozy, dozy tune"--each scene suggests the joy and love shared by parent and child. As nourishing as hearty winter soup. Ages 1-4. (Oct.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
When a Daddy bundles his baby girl for an early morning outing, there is much to see and do—harness the farm horse for a sleigh ride, make snow angels in the front yard, or check for bunny prints in the snow. This heartwarming, picture book is as comforting as a steaming bowl of oatmeal. The dreamy, lilting verse is a pleasure to read aloud. In fact, young listeners will likely ask to hear this graceful celebration of wintertime pleasures again and again. The luminous illustrations shine like sun through a frosty windowpane. Johnson's soft watercolor and pastel chalk paintings combine with the gentle text to perfectly capture the love between father and daughter. 2000, Viking, $15.99. Ages 1 to 4.

From The Critics
This is a story for toddlers, but every mother will have her heartstrings tugged by this one as well. The soft captivating pictures of a daddy and his little girl combined with the sweet poetic verse will warm a mother's heart. The story tells of a daddy taking the baby out on a wintry morning. Their experiences include making snow angels, riding in a sleigh, buying a puppy, and tucking the little baby in for her nap. It's as sweet as can be! 2000, Viking, $15.99. Ages 3 mo. to 5. Reviewer: L. Mathison SOURCE: Parent Council Volume 8
School Library Journal
PreS-A lilting, rhyming text, by turns exuberant and soothing, celebrates the small moments that a father and toddler share. They trek out into the cold, sled down a hill, walk out across a meadow, and enjoy a sleigh ride to the "market in the square." Finally back home, they warm up, snuggle, and the youngster takes a nap. Each well-constructed four-line verse is centered on a white background, opposite a framed, watercolor-and-pastel illustration. The first three lines rhyme and the last echoes the phrase, "On a wintry morning." The artwork adeptly reinforces the action. The colors sweep back off the figures as their sled speeds downward. The tender moment as the exhausted child dozes off in her father's arms is done in darker, warmer tones to focus on the pair. Perfect for both lap-time sharing and storytime, this book is a joyous collaboration.-Jane Marino, Scarsdale Public Library, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

Dori Chaconas was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1938. The second child in a family of seven, Dori fell into the role of storyteller, nursery rhyme singer, and general entertainer for her siblings. She claims she learned about story pacing early. If the story action lagged, her fidgety audience would either scatter or start a poking war.

She has been married to Nick, her high school sweetheart, for 44 years. Everyone says the romance will last. They raised four daughters, and are now enjoying three grandsons-especially Grandpa, having been outnumbered by women all those years.

When their daughters were young, Dori wrote for them. She published three picture books and more than fifty stories in children's magazines. In the 70's, her interest turned to yarn embroidery design and she sold designs to major needlework companies and national magazines.

In 1997, Dori started writing stories again, partly to keep her grandsons from fidgeting or starting poking wars. Her stories reflect the warmth of family life. Dori gives credit to her parents for giving her a strong sense of family, and to her children and grandchildren for keeping it alive.

    The Perfect Gift For a New Baby Girl!!

    This book is not only beautifully illustrated, but has a wonderfully lyrical text that'll keep you humming. Dori Chaconas' verse speaks to the heart of new parents everywhere. her words, and Stephen Johnson's illustrations capture the love between a father and his baby daughter perfectly. It's a fun read for young children. They will find themselves singing along with the refrain of 'On a Wintry Morning...' I just can't say enough about this new book. I LOVE it!
