Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The simple spare text describes a variety of activities for kids when it snows. They range from the simple joy and wonder of a youngster watching the snow fall to a young girl lying on the freshly fallen snow and moving her arms to create a snow angle to a more active slide down a snow covered hill. Each spread in this board book contains a delightful watercolor illustration featuring adorable and diversely ethnic children and their pets. Kliros art is reminiscent of Shirley Hughes and fans of her books will undoubtedly enjoy this one too. Also in the series are What Can You Do in the Rain? What Can You Do in the Wind? What Can You Do in the Sun?

PreSThese toddler-sized board books feature watercolor paintings of multicultural children splashing in puddles, building snowmen, flying kites, and engaging in other weather-appropriate activities. The text is kept to a bare minimum, using a one-, two-, or three-word sentence per double-page spread to describe things to do in each milieu. Matching the simplicity of the narratives, the paintings show a child or two, a cat or a dog, and a touch of background scenery. The rhythm of the sentencesHear it patter; Watch it fallwill appeal to young listeners. Both words and pictures allow them to experience the world through all of the senses, e.g., by tasting rain, watching clouds, feeling sand between the toes, and listening to the wind sing. Perfect introductions to the joys of reading.Dawn Amsberry, formerly at Oakland Public Library, CA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
