Staff Reviews


It's a snow day and the fun with Grandma and Grandpa begins. Beautiful illustrations and a catchy cadence evokes the delight of a winter wonderland after a storm. — Martha Cornwell

Description


A snow-day journey with Grandma highlights all of the beauty, magic, and fun of winter.

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!

Snowy scenes capture the beauty of freshly fallen snow, and the lyrical verse delights in the magic of playing in the snow and the warm comfort of family.

About the Author


Linda Booth Sweeney wrote this book after the super-snowy winter of 2015. Linda is the author of When the Wind Blows, and three nonfiction books: The Systems Thinking Playbook, When a Butterfly Sneezes, and Connected Wisdom. Linda lives near Boston with her husband, three children, Rugby the dog, Boo the parakeet, Cinnamon Bun the rabbit, and a gecko named Gregg.

Jana Christy has enjoyed many snow days like this but might love the ones where the family stays home best. She loves drawing girls with attitude, boys with pluck, the chickens that wander around her garden, punks, robots, cavemen and zombies, bleak weather, windy days, sea creatures, and more. She also loves creating handmade minibooks with her husband, exploring new places with her children, and letting her brain and brushes wander.
