Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
``I have always loved the snow,'' a rabbit grandfather tells the youngster nestled in his lap. A reminiscence of familiar wintery adventures follows, with a few rabbity twists: sledding, snowball fights, making a ``snow rabbit'' (whose carrot serves as nourishment, not as a nose), culminating with the traditional mug of cocoa. First-time author/illustrator Wallace brightens the simple, serviceable text with crisp, graphic cut-paper scenes. Her well-dressed rabbits stand out against the snowy backdrop and the soft gray skies. Although the book doesn't expand on its well-worn theme, its smallish trim size and carefully pared images give it a certain tidy charm. For a zestier and more innovative treatment, see Lois Ehlert's Snowballs (Children's Forecasts, Oct. 16). Ages 3-6. (Oct.)
Children's Literature - Gisela Jernigan
An anthropomorphic Grandpa Rabbit shares memories of playing in the snow with a young grandchild. Grandpa tells how he and his younger brother enjoyed such activities as sledding, throwing snowballs, and of course, building a snow rabbit. The bright illustrations made from cut out origami and scrap paper help to make this picture book special.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-A rabbit looks back with pleasure on the magical, snowy days of his childhood. He remembers how he and his brother watched eagerly for the first falling flakes, bundled up to go outdoors, left their body imprints on the untrammeled meadow, built a snowrabbit, coasted on a birchwood sled, had snowball battles, fed sunflower seeds to the birds, and then went inside to a cheery kitchen for hot cocoa. This easy-to-read, cozy story of two youngsters, encouraged by a nurturing mother, glorying in familiar winter fun is crisply illustrated with figures cut from a variety of types of paper. The use of bright colors, simple shapes, and white space gives a feeling of primitive exuberance to the pictures.-Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
Susan Dove Lempke
A rabbit "sits in a rocking chair with a rabbit child on his lap and reminisces about the first snow of winter when he was a child. His memories are universal ones--struggling into a snowsuit, catching snowflakes on your tongue, making snowmen (or snowrabbits, as the case may be), and coming inside for hot chocolate. Wallace strives to catch the magical quietness of the first snow in the narrative, but her text remains ordinary, uneventful, and unpoetic. However, her stark pictures, papercuts made from origami and "found" paper (as in shopping bags), are striking and evocative of both the serenity and the playfulness of children in the snow. Wallace's materials are simpler than those used in many of the recent paper-collage books, making her illustrations more tempting for children to imitate. Pair this with Keats' "The Snowy Day" to show the difference between city and rural snowscapes.
