a snow day the next day. We plan to get up early (earlier than we would if we had to go to school) and don’t even complain about it! Finally a day for us to be kids! And that last page?  Brilliant!  Did not see that coming at all.

Children and parents alike will get a kick out of this book. And as an added bonus the audio version is included in the back read by you! Thank you for that added bonus.




When the television weatherman predicts a big snowfall, the narrator gleefully imagines the fun-filled possibilities of an unscheduled holiday from school.

Piling under warm blankets. Sipping hot chocolate in snowman mugs. Building a snow fort. Sledding in the neighbor s field. In scene after snowy scene, from sunrise to sundown, a pair of siblings, with their father in tow, show how they would make the most of their day off.

But when the family wakes up the next morning, they are in for a disappointment. No snow! As the family members pile into the car so they won t be late for school, an unexpected twist reveals who wanted the snow day most of all.

Adam Gustavson s expressive illustrations comically capture the excitement of pure possibility in author Lester Laminack s thoroughly original tale.
