Snow Day!
By Lester L. Laminack
Illustrated by Adam Gustavson
Most enjoyed by anyone wishing for a snow day!

Okay, the day after a January tornado passes through our area is probably not the right time to post about a book that celebrates snow days. But if I don't do this one now, you'll miss this it when a snow day looms. And if a winter rain storm and flooding can be in our forecast, surely a snow day won't be too far away?
What makes snow days so special? Is it the change of routine, the piles of snow, the chance to stay in our jammies all day? Maybe it's a little bit of all those things! 'Snow Day' does a great job at catching all the excitement and anticipation a snow day brings. From the weather reports the night before to the dreams of sipping hot chocolate and building snow forts, it's all here. But what makes the book really fun to read is finding out at the very end who the narrator is! Can you guess who is telling the story as you read?

Teachers, enjoy this as a last minute read-aloud the day your class starts hoping for a snow day. Kids, read this anytime and start making of list of all you'll do on your next snow day. You never know, one could be around the corner!
