Description

There are planes to fly and buses to catch, but a child uses the power of words, in the form of an invocation, to persuade fate to bring her family a snow day — a day slow and unhurried enough to spend at home together.

     In a spare text that reads as pure song and illustrations of astonishingly beautiful scratchboard art, Sidman and Krommes remind us that sometimes, if spoken from the heart, wishes really can come true.

    Newbery Honor-winning children's poet Joyce Sidman and Caldecott Medal-winning illustrator Beth Krommes team up in this beautiful picture-book celebration of snow days, and the peaceful joy they bring. With a simple, poetic text, Sidman unfolds the desire of her young heroine for a world made new, covered in the transformative white beauty of snow. In her scratchboard and watercolor art, Krommes captures the enchantment that snow creates, and the family fun that results when the world is covered in icy white...Although quite brief - there are pages here with no text at all, and others that contain just a phrase - the narrative here is immensely evocative, intended (so the author tells us, in her brief afterword) as an invocation, a tribute to the power of words, and of wishing. As always, Krommes' artwork is absolutely gorgeous, reminding me of some of the old-fashioned etchings that I have so enjoyed in various vintage books in my collection. The details are really quite lovely, creating a rich visual feast for the reader. Recommended to Sidman and Krommes fans, and to anyone looking for picture-books about snow days, or the longing for them.

    Read the pictures; read the words; then read the pictures again.Beautifully done, and so much to see.

    I found this difficult to enjoy. I thought the illustrations were amazing but the writing was eh.

    While this book is not one that I would consider to be what I would think of as poetry, its few words portray a beautiful melody of a story. Every child wishes for a snow day; a day off from school to spend outside among the white fluff with those that mean the most to them. There is not many ozcences where planes do not fly, so for this child to wish for the time spent with family during a storm and for that to be able to come true, it is remarkably beautiful. This book would serve great purpose in the classroom when talking about wishes as well as before or after a snow day. I think that it would cause some confusion for students as they have to heavily rely not he illustrations to create meaning. This would also be a great book to read as an art teacher who was going to be teaching about scratch board art with some sort of winter theme!

    A book that kids will need to pay extra special attention to the pictures and the words to realize what is happening. Kids will enjoy this one before a snowstorm. I liked the note at the end explaining the style.
