KIRKUS REVIEW

In a gleeful salute to the frosty season, three wide-eyed and rosy-cheeked children and their little gray puppy spend the day sampling the pleasures of winter. With sprightly verse, Carr (Swine Divine, p. 373, etc.) captures the rapture of a snowy day spent in play. The venturesome children build a snowman, go for a hair-raising sled ride, and take a twirl around the ice. The frolicking may be done for the day as the final pages depict the three asleep by the fire, but readers know that tomorrow will bring fresh adventures. Colorful, full-page illustrations complement the text; Donohue’s cut-paper collages incorporate a variety of textures to create vivid, dimensional images of the cheerful tots and their trusty canine companion. This exhilarating picture book joyously heralds the imminent arrival of winter. (Picture book. 4-8)
