Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
You can almost hear teachers across America gathering young students around them on a winter day to read aloud this simple, colorful book that beautifully conveys what it is like to be in school when it starts to snow, and the fun of playing outside when school is cancelled on a "snow day." The text is written from the students' collective point of view, and the story starts in a classroom: "High above our school," it begins, "dark clouds fill the sky. Inside the clouds, snowflakes grow until they're too heavy to float. Then they fall. We make paper snowflakes for the windows. 'Snowflakes have six sides,' says our teacher, 'and every flake is different.'" The teacher encourages everyone to go home and wear pajamas backwards and do a snow dance, the age-old school kids' rite for invoking a snow day. The kids walk home through gathering snow. They watch it fall from inside their homes and then play in it the next day—a snow day, of course. Their world is transformed: "Fence posts wear hats. Snow snakes lie on the rails. Trees are made of lace." The illustrations make lovely contrasts between the super-bright colors young children are attracted to, that adorn their clothes and sleds, and the subtler, natural colors of the winter landscape. Two pages at the end of the book, "About Snow and Snowflakes," offer many details and higher-level vocabulary words useful for teaching students how snow crystals form and how changes in weather conditions affect the remarkable variety of their shapes. 2005, Albert Whitman & Company, Ages 4 to 8.
—J. H. Diehl
Kirkus Reviews
When snow begins to fall during the school day, a teacher suggests wearing pajamas backward and doing a little dance in the evening, but no one dares to utter "snow day" for fear of a jinx. The mini vacation is met with much excitement the next morning, as the children enter a winter wonderland. Hubbell has captured all the magic of a new snowfall: The way the flakes muffle sounds, except for the squeaks your steps make; the tiny artwork that is each snowflake; the way the world has lost its color. Imagery abounds: "Cars hide under snowy quilts." A fence has been transformed into railings made of snakes and posts that wear hats. Making a snowman, examining snowflakes with a magnifying glass and sledding occupy the children. And their teacher? They see her in the woods-doing the snow day dance. Hubbell's paintings perfectly evoke a snowy vista, and the images of individual snowflakes are amazingly detailed. A closing section elucidates how snow forms, explains the different shapes crystals can take and introduces readers to some snowy vocabulary. A wonderful way to share the secret of engineering a snow day with a class of children. (Picture book. 5-8)
