Full of winter fun, Snow Day! is a picture book to delight young children and the adults reading it, as well as being a story carried along from poem to poem like a chapter book that will engage and entertain primary and middle school readers.
Plus, it’s a wonderful poetry forms learning tool! An index and guide to each poem form’s meter, rhyme, and theme follows the story. Some forms are simple enough that kids will be able to try writing them, right away. More complex forms introduce the concept of writing poetry as a great brain game!
Join Jo, as she packs a bonus day off school with rollicking winter play. Also share her thoughtful moments: the beauty of new-fallen snow, her cozy lunch of chicken noodle soup, and snowlight at the end of a perfect day. And meet her two best friends, her mom, dad, and baby brother, an ice dragon, and a mutt who dreams he’s a sled dog.
Cheery, evocative, poignant, and hilarious by page-turns, CA Nobens’ illustrations perfectly capture the magic of a snow day.
