Over and Under the Snow by Kate Messner, illustrated by Christopher Silas Neal
We have been hoping and hoping for some snow around here, but so far, only rain (and highs in the 50’s or warmer every day). Nevertheless, the boys opted for a snowy wintery book this week at the library, and I was oohing and ahhing over the illustrations. So simple, but with great bright pops of red and interesting concepts of the unseen life going on underneath the snow on a girl and her father’s snowy ski adventure.
The book is very back-to-nature, describing and romanticizing the experience. Which I like, but it may be a little more suited for 4 and up. But, a good read! Check it out from your local library if you are dreaming of snow that may never come!
P.S.– See? Unless you are living in the Arctic, you really should take off your socks before going to bed! Anyone with me? Sweaty feet gross-out?
