Ages 5-9

There is eager anticipation of a day off from school when the forecast promises snow. “Just imagine . . . so much snow, even the buses can’t go. No—so much snow even the teachers can’t go.” The narrator makes big plans for winter fun in anticipation of a snow day and awakens to discover . . . no snow! Dizzying hopes and dashed dreams are pitch-perfect in Lester Laminack’s picture book that ends with a surprising and hilarious twist when the identity of the narrator is revealed. Adam Gustavson uses a variety of intriguing perspectives in his full-color illustrations.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
