Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Waking up to a snow-covered world, children dash outdoors:

 

“We’re silly-willy laughy, feeling slightly daffy, leaping through the snow—

Snow Happy!”

 

Follow along as they playfully romp through the freshly-fallen snow: sledding, shoveling, making snow angels, and throwing snowballs. Even the woodland animals are taking part in the winter fun!

 

At the end of a satisfying day, the children go home to shed wet clothes and enjoy hot cocoa by the fire, tired yet exhilarated. It’s what every snowy day should be!

Review:

"Two excited children act out cheery vignettes about playing in thick, fresh snow: 'We're packing snow and smacking,/ we're dodging and we're whacking./ Snowballs fly and we're--/ Snow Happy!' Ink and gouache spot details enliven Nakata's milky watercolor backgrounds: a dog chases after a squirrel, neighborhood children in brightly patterned attire ski and slide down a hill, and two red birds help to build an igloo. When the storm picks up, it's time to head inside: 'Drinking nice hot cocoa,/ we watch the sparkling snow blow./ Winter makes us all--So Happy!' The kids' euphoria is contagious and will likely have readers gazing skyward for those first flakes. Ages 3 — 6. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

About the Author

PATRICIA HUBBELL began writing poetry when she was in the third grade. Besides writing and reading, she enjoys painting, sculpting, horses, and gardening. Her books have received many honors and awards. Patricia still writes from her hometown in Easton, Connecticut.

 

HIROE NAKATA has illustrated many books for children with her cheerful and delightful paintings. For Snow Happy, Hiroe researched her own neighborhood’s parks, trees, and wildlife during snowfalls, and the local children in colorful knits were inspiring to her. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband and their daughter, who loves to use her pink ice skates every winter weekend.
