Just after a snowstorm, a little girl and her mother get ready to go outside, and then take a walk through their snow-covered neighborhood to the park and go sledding with friends. That simple storyline unfolds through a series of lively poems from Mary Quattlebaum that fill it with marvelous details and lyrical descriptions of the child’s experiences and observations. Hiroe Nakata’s buoyant, expressive paintings feature bright colors on winter-white streets and capture the childlike excitement that comes with newly fallen snow. (Ages 3–6)
