Description
The best snow day book since Ezra Jack Keats's THE SNOWY DAY...
A young rabbit wakes up to wonderful news: A snow day School is canceled, and the day that follows is rich with the magic and delight of the falling snow. And yet there is longing too, as the young rabbit and his mother wait for news of his father, grounded on a plane in a faraway city.... The news that his father will be home tomorrow gives the book a peaceful, comforting, and perfect ending.
