When squirrel triplets Mick, Mack and Molly wake up to a fresh snowfall, they want to do what any red-blooded rodent child would: go sledding. Papa’s significantly less enthusiastic, but he bundles up reluctantly to help get them going. A few trips up and down the sledding hill, however, warms him right up—enough to decide to drag a chilly Mama out to join in the fun. Iwamura’s precise, fine lines and delicate watercolors conjure a wintry forest and blue-, pink- and yellow-clad kits just enough this side of cute to make this outing an entirely refreshing romp in the snow. (Picture book. 3-5)
