School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Because of a snow day, Emily has extra time to decide on a topic for her school report. She invites her new friend from California over to play, and Marietta suggests that they make a snow town to prevent the neighborhood boys from throwing snowballs at them. In this easy reader set in 18-point type, Bliss uses short sentence structure and repetition to describe the classmates as they make a snow fort, snow town, snow money, and even a snow restaurant with spaghetti and snowballs. Emily finally decides that snow is a topic worthy of a school report. Readers will enjoy the turn from throwing snowballs to a cooperative arrangement due to the cleverness of a child who has never experienced winter. Poydar's colorful illustrations show a multiethnic gathering of friends enjoying the day off from school. Beginning readers who are ready for longer tales than Roy McKie and P. D. Eastman's Snow (Beginner, 1962) will take to this day-off-from-school story with as much eagerness as an official snow day.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
