In this lyrical celebration of one of the most awaited days of the year, two young children anticipate a snowstorm and all the joy, wonder, and excitement that it promises. As the flakes begin to fall, their wish comes true and the two cavort in the freshly fallen snow. When they are all tired out they return home to warm up by the fire with hot cocoa. Lively, bright watercolors capture the exuberance and enchantment children experience at the first snowfall. The author-illustrator team of Rain Song brings us yet another perfect read-aloud for any weather.
Cynthia Jabar is the illustrator of a number of books for children, including Rain Song and Snow Dance. Her distinctive illustrations have been described by viewers as "vigorous," "full of zest," and "bright and saucy." She divides her time between Portland, Maine, and New York City.
"Impressive collages . . . A joyful celebration of family and food." Booklist, ALA
"A rhyming celebration of snow that covers just about every playtime activity possible before, during, and after a snowstorm." Kirkus Reviews
