When the Snow Falls By Linda Booth Sweeney


Back of Book:
With sparkling flakes calling from outside, this sister and brother bundle up for an outdoor adventure with Grandma. In the hushed woods, they see and hear wildlife thriving under a new blanket of snow. In the bustle of town, they help their grateful Grandpa dig out. Then, it’s time to get sledding!
My Review:
I live in Southern California and snow is not something that is seen very often. I love finding picture books that describe the fun, and excitement of snow days. This is a perfect read aloud to share in the classroom or at home. It perfectly depicts a day of wintery fun. The rhyming scheme allows readers to follow along and enjoy a snow day. The illustrations are rich in color and allow a reader to feel like they are in the story. I also love the diversity within the illustrations. This is easily one of my favorite winter tales. A beautiful lyrical text that is sure to delight young and old alike.
