Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 3

Ruthie needs a break from school and longs for a snow day. She thinks that if rain dances bring showers, perhaps a snow dance will bring on a storm. She composes a little song and dance and begins her effort. She enlists her friends' help and convinces various adults to join in the dance. Her plan actually works, and the children and adults enjoy a relaxing day. Facklam's illustrations are bright and colorful, and the cartoon characters are slightly quirky. In the snowy scenes, the buildings look like ice-cream confections complete with cherries and marshmallows. Will Hubbell's Snow Day Dance (Albert Whitman, 2005) is similar, but more realistic in its approach and art.-Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR

Meet the Author

Peggy Thomas is fascinated by the world around her. Growing up outside Buffalo, New York, she and her brother, illustrator Paul Facklam, did not have to wish too hard for snow, but the weather inspired them to create Snow Dance, so that every child could enjoy a snow day. Mrs. Thomas received a master's degree in anthropology from the State University of New York and is a member of the Society of Children's Book writers and Illustrators.
