hen the Snow Falls
, written in verse by Linda Booth Sweeney and beautifully illustrated by Jana Christy, captures the magic of the first snowfall of the winter season ... '
Frost paints. / Skies gray. / Windows sparkle. / Snow? Yay!
randma is visiting, so brother and sister head outside to enjoy the white drifts with her. Out comes the sleigh and into the forest they wander: '
Woods hush. / Fields glisten. / Wren sings. / We listen.
' They head into town and help Grandpa clear a path with shovels. They toboggan, make snow angels, and when they feel the chill, head inside for hot drinks and a warm cuddle.
here's always a lot going on
when the snow falls
and this charming picture book captures those events - and feelings - very well.
