Synopses & Reviews
Baby is fast asleep when Mama spies the first flakes of his first snowfall. “Its snowing!” she sings. “Baby, its snowing!” Mama bundles Baby in thick, warm furs and scrunches into her coat. Out into the snow they go, to see it, smell it, hear it, taste it, touch it—and play in it. Olivier Dunreas exquisite hymn to snow is the story of a solitary night when a mother introduces her baby to the beauty and pleasure of falling snow.
“The gouache paintings are beautifully executed, evoking a sublime winter wonderland. This is a lovely, satisfying story to share at bedtime.”—School Library Journal
“So evocative is Dunreas finely detailed art that viewers will practically be able to feel the winter air on their own faces, and experience the deep quiet. . . . Theres a feeling of reverence beneath the joy that connects this with both the adult sensibility of Robert Frosts Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening and the more childlike pleasures of Ezra Jack Keatss Snowy Day.”—Kirkus Reviews
