Editorial Reviews

Booklist
Even toddlers will soon chime in on what's sure to be their favorite line, "Uh-oh," not to mention echoing the little dogs' cry after their snowy landing, "Again! Again!"
Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
This book celebrates winter and shows the joy that one can experience sledding in the snow. The wind howls and the snow falls and falls and falls and falls, but the reader is captivated by the winter wonderland through words and illustrations. A night snowstorm creates a perfect sledding day. The snow scene is vividly portrayed while the characters enjoy sledding. We can feel the "SPLOOMPH" as their sled takes them over the crest of a hill and airborne with the birds before landing. We can understand why the characters' final words are "Again! Again!" as they sprawl, smiling, on the snowy slope. Harper captures the joy of a winter day and the magic of the first snow thanks to his own experiences sledding with his sons. His words and imaginative illustrations bring the familiar winter activity to life. All who read this delightful story will want to head for the slopes! Reviewer: Annie Laura Smith
School Library Journal
PreS-K—The snow comes down all through the night, creating perfect sledding conditions for the next day. Two pups get bundled up and head outside with their dad, pile onto a sled, and head down the hill. They hit a bump and go soaring into the air, and three spreads show them blissfully sailing alongside the birds. When they are struck with the realization that they can't really fly, they crash to earth, right before the requisite, "Again! Again!" Harper's watercolor illustrations are simple, yet effective. Readers get a good sense of the cold, crisp snow and billowing clouds, and the characters' faces are expressive. Children will enjoy this reminder of how much fun winter can be.—Ieva Bates, Ann Arbor District Library, MI
Kirkus Reviews
The morning after a snowfall a dog family heads out to the "best sledding hill in the / whole / wide / world." Piling onto their sled, they swoosh "down the hill / faster than the speed of sound" before a BIG bump launches them into the air with the geese, sled and all. In his authorial debut, Harper nails the excitement of a swoop down a pristine hill. He depicts his dogs as floppy-eared brown hounds all bundled up in boots, parkas, hats and mittens. The full-bleed paintings place them in a wintry wilderness, surrounded by evergreens. This is a celebration of snow and speed, pure and simple-readers will understand exactly why, after landing with a bone-rattling SPLOOMPH, the kids have only one thing to say: "Again! Again!" (Picture book. 2-5)
