KIRKUS REVIEW

An adorable brown-haired, brown-eyed Caucasian baby enjoys a day full of winter surprises.

In this engaging lift-the-flap offering, simple questions are posed and the answers revealed underneath large, easy-to-grasp flaps. Printed on a large, polka-dot curtain is the question “What’s outside the window?” Lifting the “curtain” reveals giant snowflakes. On subsequent pages, readers must peek behind a pile of snowballs to find Baby’s red sled, behind a mound of dirt to discover a groundhog, behind a fence to find a giant purple snowplow and behind a snowman to find a baby deer. Finally, from behind a pine tree, Baby’s mom appears with a frothy mug of hot cocoa. In most cases, a small piece of the hidden object can be seen peeking out from behind the closed flap; these hints will help to keep little ones interested by encouraging them to guess what Baby will find next. Katz’s illustrations are—as usual—bright, bold, cheery and full of interesting patterns. They combine with the simple text and interactive flaps to produce an effective and appealing introduction to winter for the littlest readers.

With lift-the-flap explorations of spring, summer and fall already on the shelves, this winter offering is a charming culmination to a satisfying series. (Board book. 6 mos.-2)
