REVIEW: One Snowy Day by Diana Murray and Diana Toledano
The snow coats the treetops
and covers the grass
as THREE happy faces
peer out through the glass.
When millions of snowflakes blanket the town in white, ONE energetic puppy and TWO children set out for some snowy day fun—full of friends, sledding, snowballs, puppy hijinks, and more. The lyrical, rhyming text counts up to ten and back down to one, making this the perfect way to incorporate learning into snow day fun.
I never could resist a snowy day when I was a child and these two children plus their dog can’t either. First a little “downward dog” stretching then breakfast. Bundled up in boots and snuggled in scarves they head out to enjoy sledding, snowballs and making a snowman – snowperson? – with their friends. The text is easy to follow and with the lovely pictures it will allow children to practice their counting skills – and dream of their own winter fun. B+
