A cute story about having fun in the snow. I like the quality time that is emphasized in the story. The illustrations are different, but nice.

This story made me want to snuggle under some blankets to read it. A cozy book that would be a wonderful read for a parent and child to share. The rounded corners of the illustrations made me feel as though I was looking in through a window.

This book is beautiful and so simple. I love that some of the illustrations are really dark, and you have to strain your eyes to see the details. The feeling of being trapped inside beyond your control is perfectly shown in this book. I've been there!

I liked this book because it was one that I could actually relate to. I remember those snowy days back when I was in Philadelphia (which was only a year ago!) I loved them especially when I had school and school was cancelled. Just like the book book, my brother and I would have to wait inside until the snow stopped. My Mom would make us hot chocolate and we would play board games. This book was a great reminder. The pictures also set the mood. It made me want to just curl up on my couch with my blanket and read. I liked how the pictures told it's own story!

The illustrations in this book really captured the feel of a snow day however I'm not sure I enjoyed this book. Yes the bunny's mother was worried about her husband stranded at the airport but she kind of took it out on her kid. It was a snow day and the poor bunny wasn't able to anything but play cards? The joy of a snow day is to go outside and play in the snow not stare out the window at it. It's a simple story that most kids would enjoy, but I'm not sure that they can relate to it.You could read this book after a snow day, to your class. Then you could have a show and tell type discussion to describe what everyone did on their day off.

The protagonist of this story is a rabbit, who wakes up to find that he does not have to go to kindergarten as it has snowed over night. Rabbits are a popular animal to personify in children's books, but Sakai does a good job of building a relateable character with her rabbit. The book provides a wonderful representation of fresh snowfall, and how this makes a person feel. On one page, the rabbit says "Mommy, we are all alone in the world" - which is exactly how fresh snow can feel. It is paced extremely well, and would be a good story to read one-on-one.

Genre: FantasyPoint of View: 5 stars (1st person)Review: A little rabbit doesn't have to go to school because it's snowing way to much. All he wants to do is play outside, but his mom won't let him until is stops snowing, so they spend the whole day together inside until it stops.This book is a good example of fantasy because the story, characters, setting and events are made to be believable. However, this book could also be categorized as realistic fiction because this event could take place in real life. However, the characters in the story are rabbits, in which case this event would never actually take place.Media: paint & colored pencil

(easy, picture) Little rabbit wakes up to discover it has been snowing all night long and school is cancelled! It continues to snow all day. He and his mama get to spend their time together doing things that their normal schedule don't allow. Once the snow stops late at night, they go outside to scrape up the last remnants of their wonderful day. This book through the use of illustration, color and text captures the excitement and anticipation of a snow day, as well as the peaceful tranquility of a quiet snow fall. I used to live in the North, so I'm aware of these attributes of a snowfall. This book could help children in a southern region understand what a snowfall is like.
