A sudden snow storm and the entire routine of a little boy's life is pleasantly intruded upon. This is the day daddy, unable to get to the city, stays home. This is the day the thermometer drops, snow balls are thrown, sled rides are taken; this is the day daddy shovels and shovels and shovels. By the author-illustrator team of The Big Red Bus, the text and pictures of The Day Daddy Stayed Home convey the excitement inherent in a sudden change of weather and routine. Pictures which with maximum economy evoke the feeling of winter.
