The magical experiences of a cold and snowy winter's day are woven together with rhyming text and captured in vibrant illustrations. Children bundle into snowsuits and race outside into a sparkling world of white to build houses of snow bricks, catch snowflakes on their tongues, and make snow angels. Almost as much fun as playing in the snow is coming back indoors to toast toes in front of the fire and share a story before snuggling in bed. As cozy as soft flannel sheets, here is a joyful celebration of childhood - and of the perfect snowy day.
