Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa Hower
As the days get colder and the season of winter settles in, a teacher reveals twelve days of winter surprises to her class. Through a cumulative counting verse, a child lists each of the items: a bird feeder, teddy bears, bells for ringing, socks for stuffing, cubes for gluing, and much more. With each new winter activity, the classroom becomes more and more chaotic. The children are having fun cutting, pasting, and stitching, while the teacher struggles to keep the children focused. They seem to get into everything, and the frazzled teacher looks as though she has lost control. The illustrations make this book a winner. Each page is filled with colorful pictures of rambunctious children getting into mischief. This book would be an excellent supplement to any primary math curriculum, and a great introduction to numbers and counting. The hilarious illustrations are filled with clever details, and the familiar verse will make this book a classroom favorite.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Once again, this team has used the familiar tune as the framework for a cumulative counting verse, this time with winter activities both indoors and out as the focal point. The verses themselves are a good fit for the melody, but they would be unremarkable if not accompanied by the clever and humorous illustrations. Each of the eight children in this busy classroom has a distinct personality, revealed through meticulous and consistent attention to detail on every spread. The child obsessed with horses takes every opportunity to make them, even as snowflake cutouts; another child dances throughout, and in the final spread creates a version of Degas' Little Dancer out of snow. While the book would work well as a read- or sing-aloud, with so much to pore over and absorb in the art, it is best used for one-on-one sharing. A surefire choice to spice up the dreariest winter day.-Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Those hysterical kindergartners are back with even more personality in this delightful wintry sequel to The Twelve Days of Kindergarten (2003). While Rose's little blond narrator tells her own story of feeding the birds, visiting the zoo, studying a worm farm and enjoying music and arts and crafts, Armstrong-Ellis's pictures show her classmates engaged in their own pursuits. The little girl who only drew horses now sculpts them; the klutzy boy has an accident with glue; and the nose-picker cuts a hole in his mitten for his finger. Add to the mix a Miss Frizzle-like teacher, an escaped zoo penguin and an open window, and the scene is set for some chaotic learning experiences. But through it all, readers get a sense of the camaraderie of the classroom. Unfortunately, only one hamster remains in residence. Nevertheless, observant readers will find plenty of other details to chuckle over. Sure to be loved by students and teachers alike. (Picture book. 4-8)
