Peering out her window into a world of whiteness, one little girl can’t resist the call of the snow. “Hello, morning . . . / Goodbye, night. / I see something / Cold and white!” After pulling her sleepy parents from bed, she begins dressing for the cold. Even a thumb caught in her zipper and a hat that has a hard time staying off her eyes cannot dampen her enthusiasm. Building a snowman and shoveling a giant mountain of snow give way to sled rides. Only the lure of doughnuts and hot cocoa can pull her and her friend away from a full and freezing day. Amusing ink-and-watercolor illustrations accompany rhyming text as she steps on the cat’s tail or crashes her sled, sending even the dog flying. Dad gets the worst of it as the sled plows into him, too. Typically, Westcott adds a lot to whatever else is going on and listeners will enjoy finding funny bits as well as watching that cat. (Picture book. 3-6)
